There is another sense in which we live "on Grace street" and it is that which is the primary reason for this site. As classically-trained woodwind players who are Christian, we have had many opportunities to participate in worship services in a variety of ways, in large and in small churches, in church orchestras or in hired-in groups for special occasions, as part of smaller ensembles, and as a clarinet and bassoon duet. We have long felt a need for appropriate music composed specifically for the woodwind instruments, and of interest to serious performers. During the past decade or so, we have set out to produce useful and interesting church music for clarinet and bassoon, our instruments, by arranging hymns and other sacred music to play as part of services at our own church or during visits as guest musicians elsewhere.
Jon likes to start with a hymn tune and discover ways to build its thematic elements into an interesting setting that will stay in the listener's mind and bring to mind the text of a hymn associated with the tune, or the general teaching of the hymn or of the service in which the setting was heard. Linda is more likely to arrange a work of a master composer into a form in which we can share what we have found beautiful about it, or to do a little more traditional setting of a well-known hymn or song. In either case, we hope that as we add selections to the
list begun here and adapt them to various instruments, you will find woodwind music for the church that you will want to share.

As you look through our music you will see that there are already settings for other combinations of instruments in some instances. If a setting interests you but your instrument(s) is(are) not listed, or for other information or discussion about our music, please drop us an e-mail at
music@ongracestreet.com

In the case of duets, the edition consists of two parts; one a score, the other a single instrumental part. You will have all the music you need to perform from - we will try to lay the parts out so that page turns are already accommodated without your needing to copy pages. Other settings will be typical of their genre. We use the "comb" binding system.
