Music by J. Bruce Ashton​

Composer-arranger J. Bruce Ashton specializes in tasteful arrangements of hymns and familiar tunes, for small ensembles, or for choir and orchestra. He also writes appealing original compositions for recital hall and church.  Most of his works were written for specific individuals, groups, or occasions.  Many have been performed frequently, and have become dearly loved by those who have heard them and performed them. However, the majority of his hundreds of pieces have been, until recently, unpublished. Thus they have not been available to the general public. 

We are seeking to correct that situation.  You will find on this web site’s  pages a sampling of Dr. Ashton’s compositions.  Most of them are now self-published, and are either ready for shipping, or can be printed and sent to you promptly.  We hope that you will enjoy browsing through the collection, and that you will find something in it that will fit your needs and bring you pleasure.
