I'vejust been listening to some concertos for recorder, flute and oboe by the early C18 English composer Robert Woodcock. They are delightful. There is some controversy as to whether they weren't written by Jean Baptiste Loeillet instead, but whoever wrote them they are delightful.
But, the usual story, you can buy umpteen recordings of Vivaldi concertos, but there is no complete recording of the set of 12 concertos, just eight of nine of them scattered over almost as many disks.
Just posting here in the hope someone can tell me I'm wrong and there is a complete recording.

I'm not familiar with the concerti in question, but recently my early music ensemble added a piece by Woodcock titled "Hackney" to our repertoire. It's a wonderful, bustling romp that I see as somewhat of an early music parallel to John Adams "A Short Ride in a Fast Machine." Great fun to play and hear. In the case of this particular work I can detect no influence of Loeillet.

That might be by Clement Woodcock, who lived in the C16 (died c 1590).

You're correct. I had my Woodcocks mixed up!
