5.0 out of 5 stars A "cheep" relaxation technique... (sorry!), 17 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dawn Chorus: A Sound Portrait of a British Woodland at Sunrise (British Library - British Library Sound Archive) (Audio CD)
I bought this for a couple of reasons - one was to provide some relaxing, natural background sounds whilst sitting at the dining table doing painting or creative play on miserable winter days with my two-year-old (instead of having the dreaded telly on, or loud distracting music all the time - very welcome relief!). The other reason was just because, of course, birdsong is beautiful and relaxing to listen to, and mummy simply liked the thought of having the ability to listen to it at any time of day, rather than just at dawn!

There are a lot of recordings out there of individual bird's songs (to identify indivdual calls), but I just wanted the 'nature' sound of the dawn chorus for the reasons stated above, and this one was well worth the money. This is a lovely, clear recording. You really can picture yourself there in the woods at daybreak, mist lying low on the ground, the freshness in the air... and it was obviously recorded in a very tranquil spot, so no other noises to be heard (traffic etc.) - just the birds. Truly lovely. The running time is very good - it's nice, long tracks of continuous birdsong - not short bursts like some other CDs, so played on a loop, it's a lovely background track to a relaxing afternoon (or evening, or any time!)... If I didn't have a two-year-old, I expect I would lounge on the sofa with a good book, dog at my feet, a cup of tea on the side and a whole packet of hobnobs whilst listening to this instead... either way, a fantastic way to relax!
