Chesterton Flowers (score & parts) - 4BSN
Composer: Goddard, Mark
Publisher: Spartan Press (Scotland)
for bassoon quartet
by Mark Goddard (b. 1960) - British composer
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.
