Birds and Their Gift of Music


Title: Paperback
Sale price£15.99


This authoritative account links the two worlds of birds and music to show the extraordinary influence that birds, through song and behaviour, have had on composers and musicians over the last millennium. Over 1200 examples represent folk music, renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic and modern periods including, more recently, popular music and jazz. Musicians are presented by country and the reader will find brief composer biographies, short descriptions of many of the individual pieces, which may be songs, instrumental, choral or orchestral, also references to the poetry which has inspired much of the music. A series of invaluable appendices facilitates easy access to a wonderful world of discoveries. 


The author lives in North Norfolk where he is well known for his many illustrated talks on a variety of musical subjects particularly concerning birds. He has devoted many years to researching his subject in the certain belief that this is a book which needed to be written and which will appeal to a wide reading international public of bird, music and nature lovers.  


About the artist Mark Glaister: Growing up in Carlisle, Cumbria, Mark was always inspired by his rather eccentric uncle, Ernest Glaister, a local watercolour artist but did not take up watercolour himself until late in life. He paints landscapes often drawing on the area of North Norfolk where he now lives in retirement with his wife, Grace.
