    Dear Forum,

    I am starting a double reed ensemble in Southern California, and have recently been hunting down music for a decent-sized “quack squad”, maybe two oboes, one English horn, and one or two bassoons. I have pretty much explored every corner of Bocal Music and Forrests Woodwinds looking for d. r. music. Does anyone know of some great places to look for “quack squad” music?

    Thanks so much!

    Try Hickey’s Music, I’ve always gotten lucky there (oops! I mean I have always been luck there, *wink*)

    Steve,
    *laughter* Thanks for your help. I’ll have fun delving into the depths of double reed ensemble music!

    Woops!

    Strange, when I went to look at this post, I could not find my last post (2005-07-15) and so I thought I had not replied to Steve.

    It sounds like Trevco http://www.trevcomusic.com/ might be the place for you to go. You can select the instrumentation and find what’s available.

    TrevCo has also added an easy drop down search for Double Reed Choir so you don’t have to search every specific combination.

    What a great company the TrevCo is. It must be run by a basson player !!!! :)

    I recently purchased some of Trevco’s double reed ensemble music…the Sabre Dance and Stars and Stripes Forever. They’re terrific! They always arrive quickly as well.

    For double reed quartets and quintets, you may want to look at Bocal Music http://www.bocalmusic.com/shop/. For several years now, Alan Hawkins has been publishing arrangements, originals, and even a few first editions.
    Gail Warnaar, the Double Reed Shop http://www.theoldhomestead.com/reed.htm stocks things by various publishers.

    There is also a body of unpublished original double reed ensemble literature like some of the works the Georgia Double Reed Ensemble did in Muncie lat month. If you hear or learn about something you like, you may have to request parts from composers.

    good luck!
