Together with the flute, oboe, English horn, clarinet, and contrabassoon, it covers the position of the bass and tenor instrument of the orchestra.

Maybe it’s just me, but the way I’m reading this it seems as if all the instruments are covering “the position of the bass and tenor instrument of the orchestra”. But I have been known to read this incorrectly, so there’s that ….

And if they are including English horn and contrabassoon, why aren’t they including piccolo and bass clarinet (and other clarinets, for that matter!).

I read it online. I’ll leave out a link; don’t want to be embarrassing anyone.
