And Yorker oboists (is that what they would be called?) take note:

Recently I found myself in York Central Library and I found a pile of scores on a bookcase in the corridor – they were given to the library by an oboist (presumably in his will) and many of them are (obviously) for oboe. However, this collection included some things I’d not even heard of, e.g. Magnard’s Oboe Quartet, York Bowen’s Oboe Sonata and various sets of variations for oboe and piano. I was then told it was OK to borrow from this collection but that it was unlikely the collection would be in the library for much longer as it was not being borrowed by people.

Hmmm. I wonder if there’s a way to contact the library and see if anything could be purchased. Probably easier for you in the UK, but still ….
