Nightingales: A Celebration

Nightingales: A Celebration

Published by British Trust for Ornithology

The Nightingale has a very special place in British literature and folklore. It is arguably the sweetest and most romantic of Britain's songsters. But it is also a species in serious decline. This recording has been specially compiled by the British Trust for Ornithology to raise funds that will be used in research to help save the Nightingale. There is a fascinating mix of recordings, old and new, including an introduction by Richard Mabey, the earliest ever bird-recording from 1910 and two tracks where Beatrice Harrison plays the cello and a Nightingale joins in!; whilst more recent recordings reveal the breadth of the species' repertoire. The accompanying booklet also gives information to help you find Nightingales in the wild.
