Cor anglais (British English and French), or English horn (American English), is a double-reed woodwind instrument in the oboe family, of which it is the tenor. (It is not a horn, but bears the same relation to the oboe as the basset horn (a F instrument) does to the clarinet (a C instrument))

The cor anglais is a transposing instrument pitched in F (a F instrument), a perfect fifth lower than the oboe (a C instrument), and is consequently approximately one and a half times the length of the oboe.
