  1. That really puts the “angle” in cor anglais

  2. Sure does! (But that actually IS where they think the name came from … a mistranslation of “Cor Anglé”, meaning Angled Horn, or some such thing.)

  4. I wish I played Angle Horn. Darn. (Of course now that it’s not angled like that people would be so confused … probably thinking that the curved bocal was the cause for the name.)
