There isn't any error when grafts are disabled, and the formerly missing
file is present. All I can gather is that when grafting is enabled the
build occurs without a hitch, grafting denemo begins, and the following
error appears:

  grafting '/gnu/store/1nb86mqssww679y2sg6iycab5qa76iid-denemo-2.0.8' ->

  instruments/woodwind/Clarinet in B???.denemo: No such file or directory

Where the "???" represents a ♭ symbol.
