French Nightingale

Occitanie, France

The nightingale’s song is one of nature’s most treasured melodies. This European bird signifies the coming of Spring and throughout history has appeared as muse to many – a mystic intervenant or melancholy mirror who summons symbolic associations ranging from creativity, nature’s purity, and, in Western spiritual tradition, virtue and goodness.

Recorded in the Hérault region of Southwestern France, a lone nightingale hidden deep in a thicket shares its song with the night.
