An Early Evening Stroll

Bird song:

Cliché as it may be, music is all around us. When you walk out the door or even just crack a window, you immediately hear it: bird songs intertwine, creating a beautiful symphony.

And so this episode of An Early Evening Stroll is all about bird song and how this left its mark on the works of renowned composers. We will stroll from Great Britain to France to the USA and will hear the diverse variations of birds from both the western and eastern side of the Atlantic Ocean.
