Amazing Grace- The Power of Music

Why does music evoke tears? Dominic asked me to find Amazing Grace so he could figure it out on the piano. I came across this version from Il Divo and was crying like a baby. Maybe it was the bag pipe because at my father's funeral they played this song on the bag pipes. What a beautiful instrument and a beautiful song!


  1. I love this version. Music is such a gift...

  2. I have recently thought about why Classical music can make many people cry/get very emotional...after all there are no lyrics (leaving aside pieces with choirs). It is a manifestation of Beauty; it is truly mysterious how sound waves can move someone so much.
