Chesterton Flowers
for bassoon quartet
by Mark Goddard (b. 1960)- British composer
I. Hollyhocks
II. Deadly Nightshade
III. French Marigolds
IV. Canterbury Bells

This work was written for a concert given by the "Equal Opportunities Bassoon Quartet" as part of a flower festival at the Oxfordshire village of Chesterton, in June of 1985. The current names of each of the four movements are only one interpretation: the aggressive strains of II for example, could equally suggest "Mother-in-Law's Tongue" or "Stinking Hellbore". Feel free to rename them as the mood takes you. 

Duration: 10:00
