Misc. Notes This part reduces the original oboe and cor anglais parts to make them playable by one performer. By using this part and playing all the cues in the other parts, the orchestra can be reduced to 2.1(cor).2.1/2.2.2.0/timp/str. This will not realise Butterworth's full intentions, but may be useful to orchestras with limited resources.
