Amazing Grace has always been an inspirational song to me, and I fell in love with the Bag Pipes playing this when this version was used briefly at the end of STAR TREK II The Wrath of Khan. This is the full version with bag pipes and it is truly an amazing rendition.
wHEN i WAS A MEMBER OF THE cHOIR AT gOOD sHEPHEARD cATHOLIC cHURCH, WE USED TO SING THIS SONG QUITE A BIT, IT BECAME A FAVORITE. hERE IS mICHAEL cRAWFORD, BETTER KNOWN AS THE pHANTOM OF THE oPERA, SINGING THIS GREAT PIECE. Sorry for the typos, this is what happens when you have a cat playing with you and you are typing.
This last song is dedicated to my Father Ralph Edward Richards, whom was a musician and arranger. When I was 9 years old, he wrote an arangement of this song. Every time I hear this song, I am reminded of my father and encouraged to strive, to seek to find and not to yield. Borrowing from a poet there that last reference.
So there you have it, the songs that inspire and encourage me.
