'Dawn Chorus' by Geoff Sample - Album Sample by Listening Earth published on 2012/08/21 03:21:21 +0000 3 minute audio sample from the 74 minute nature sound album; "Dawn Chorus", by Geoff Sample, available for download from http://www.listeningearth.com/LE/product.php?id=107 It is predawn in a woodland in northern England. Trees drip with a heavy dew from overnight mists, and we hear the last of the nightbirds; tawny owl and woodcock. The first songbirds begin, and a cuckoo starts up somewhere in the distance. Gradually more birds take up singing until the soundscape is a mass of intertwined themes. The main chorus is heard from outside the wood - a surrounding sea of birdsong. Once the full chorus begins to wane, we re-enter the wood to hear more spacious scenes with a variety of singers.
