There's 67 minutes of wonderful English pastoral music on this disc, starting with the less known Gordon Jacob's Concerto for Oboe & Strings & concluding with Vaughan Williams' Oboe Concerto. In between are compositions for oboe by Elgar, Holst & Goosens. They're all very, very good (Holst's "A Fugal Concerto" is an old favorite of mine), but I especially enjoyed the concerto by Jacobs, which I was unfamiliar with. It is a first class piece of writing all the way, very engaging.

The players are outstanding, the recording quality is excellent & I loved the cover which tells the whole story here -- a flock of sheep making their way through an English village. Very highly recommended!

Leo Goosens is one of those seminal figures in the recent times for the prominence of the oboe as a virtuoso instrument.

This is colleciton of works composed for him, as well as another landmark oboist of England, Rothwell.

It is performed most admirably by a rising British oboist, Ruth Bolister who in fact played a performace for Princess Diana. She has a solid sound, somewhat darker than American oboists, but refreshing to hear nonetheless. Her phrasing and attacks are powerful.

The compositions by Jacob, Elgar, Holst (composed while at UofM Ann Arbor), Eugene Goosens, and Ralph Vaughan Williams are united in their showing off the skills of the oboe, tightly supported yb the Elgar Chamber Orchestra under conductor Stephen Bell.

The Jacob piece was new to me, but I enjoy its pastoral setting and charmful lyricism.
