Publisher's Summary

The blackbird is one of the most familiar of all British birds and its song is a great favourite. Enjoy the beautiful melodies created by this much-loved songbird in the British Library's new collection of recordings, which reveal the extraordinary virtuosity, splendour, and magic of its song.

From the poet Edward Thomas to the Beatles, the blackbird has been an inspiration to writers, composers, and the wider public for many centuries. The recordings that form this audio download have been sourced from across Europe to ensure the highest possible quality, show why, and offer a compilation of sound portraits that promises hours of listening pleasure. A wonderful listening experience for anyone interested in birdsong.
