Default John Newton (#7406)

Just noting while there are some albums where John Newton is credited for composing Amazing Grace (these two, maybe this), they are incorrect; he only wrote the words. The melody we associate with it was added some years later by the composer William Walker, although he wasn't the original composer either (like a lot of this stuff, he adapted a previously-existing melody).
