Grace TTBB with Piano (Grace Evelyn Gifford Plunket)

Grace Evelyn Gifford Plunkett (4 March 1888 – 13 December 1955) was an Irish artist and cartoonist who was active in the Republican movement, who married her fiancé Joseph Plunkett in Kilmainham Gaol only a few hours before he was executed for his part in the 1916 Easter Rising. …… She is the subject of “Grace”, a song written in 1985 by Frank and Seán O’Meara, which became popular in Ireland and elsewhere and has been recorded by many musicians.

As almost everything you search for under "grace" on the internet brings up Amazing Grace, and being in need of a TTBB version for the Mayo Male Voice Choir, I decided to write a four part TTBB version and asked another choir member, Joseph Garvey, to collaborate mainly on the piano accompaniment but also correcting some of my oddities!

We have kept the song simple to emphasise the gravity of the subject matter. This arrangement may be freely copied and amended for non-commercial use provided attribution is given and changes are shared in the same way. The following part videos and all MP3 files, PDFs etc can be found here.

    Dear David,

    The Google Drive folder this links to is empty and I would very much like the PDFs of this arrangement if you still have them available?

    Best Regards,

      Hi Eliot. I just looked at the content from the link above and can see everything OK. Leave it with me an hour or so and I will get back to you.

      I have checked the permissions of that folder and it is set to anyone can find and view so there should not be a problem. All files in the folder should be inheriting the same permissions and all are marked as shared.

      If anyone else has a problem please let me know.
