  • New Grove Dictionary, 1984: "Whithorn [May-horn]. An oboe made of gtreen willow bark twisted into a conical shape and fastened with hawthorn spines. It has a double reed made of soft willow bar pressed together. It is widely used in Europe, mainly by herdsmen for signalling; in England it was used in the Oxfordshire forests in connection with a local Whit Monday hunt. It is also sometimes played by children, itinerant vendors and tradesmen. It produces one loud sound which may be caused to fluctuate in pitch by a variation of breath pressure.
