Secret Songs of Birds:The Hidden Beauty of Birdsong Revealed

product image

"The Secret Songs of Birds "invites us to listen to the hidden beauty of birdsong. Many remarkable songbirds produce songs that astound us with their complexity and speed of delivery. Though such sounds as the duets of the Pacific Wren, the loud symphony of the Skylark, the babbling mimicry of the Icterine Warbler, and the acrobatic range of the Grey Fantail never fail to impress, it is almost impossible for the human ear to distinguish the wealth of hidden notes and surprising melodies that make up these remarkable compositions. Even many experienced ornithologists are not able to grasp the complexity of the songs by simply listening.

On this disc, however, the original recordings are played alongside digitally mastered versions where the natural speed has been specifically slowed down to reveal the subtle intricacy of each song in its full splendor. This unusual approach to birdsong will delight anyone fascinated by the extraordinary range of birdsongs around the world.
