Publisher's Summary

Experience the pure sounds of the sea with this audio download, Waves: The Sounds of Britain's Shores. From the gentle lapping of water on a Cornish beach to the powerful crashing of waves on a rocky shore, this collection of recordings explores the idea that each beach has its own signature sound and demonstrates the contrasting nature of Britain's shoreline.

Critic Reviews

"The BL excels at this sort of unclassifiable thing and I love them for it (as I do the walled sanctuary of the St John Wilson building in London, and that in bl.uk, their own high-level domain, there is a way in which a library is on a par with a government). These recordings are best thought of as sound art, and act as both documentation and interpretation, but also a celebration of the British coast in all its glorious, cold dampness." (Chloe Evans, Caught by the River)

Press play and I'm instantly transported to the seaside. Brilliant for relaxing. Perfect for a good nights sleep ... the waves gently carry me to sleep and I wake up feeling very refreshed! Would be great to play in the background during class time or to use with the children during our relax session! Love it! Overall: 4 stars ... needs a wild storm; Story: 5 stars ... there isn't one, you make up your own!
