Amazing Grace (popular hymn first published 1779, catch-all)
The tune currently commonly associated with Amazing Grace is an anonymous folk tune.
This tune has been identified variously as, Harmony Grove (which for years had James Carrell and David Clayton misattributed as its composers) and also, New Britain to which William Walker set Newton's words.
"New Britain", (itself an amalgamation of two melodies "Gallaher" and "St. Mary") was published with the John Newton's lyrics by Charles H. Spilman and Benjamin Shaw in 1829.
