As great mind thinks alike, great music may just harmonize alike. This week we want to share with you this brilliantly arranged piece in which it meshes Amazing Grace with Bach’s music.
Along with the well-known melody of Amazing Grace, we also hear the familiar themes from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 Prelude, and then the soothing arpeggios from The Well-Tempered Clavier Book 1’s Prelude and Fugue. It is truly amazing how well the melodies harmonize with each other.
The piece was created and performed by Take 3 Trio, an American crossover ensemble who “brings the refinement of a rigorous classical music background and infuses it with rock-star charisma.” As professionally trained classical musicians, the ensemble pleasantly plays around contemporary pop songs and classical music, and brings invigorating vibes to concerts.
