Sarah, from A Glass of Chianti, wins the prize for her very quick response (14 minutes after I posted the entry!) and correct answer to yesterday’s question:

Maybe I know… is it that the “oboe” was actually an English horn? Maybe?
-Sarah

And she’s got it.

Ahhh. I see that Terminal Degree answered correctly as well. (For those of you who don’t know, Cor Anglais is the same as English horn. And the British say CA not EH. Just FYI.) Anyway, smart women, eh?! :-)

So now my question is … did the reviewer get things wrong? (Horrors! The difference between an oboe and English horn is pretty obvious, and of course anyone who does his or her homework knows that Quiet City is for English horn, trumpet and strings.), or did they re-orchestrate the work (I can’t imagine that but I suppose it’s possible). Anyway, it’s a puzzlement and I would love to have someone solve this for me.

Help?
