Here are the results of our latest newsletter competition:
We asked: Observed by Paul Griffiths as ‘a more conscientious ornithologist than any previous composer, and a more musical observer of birdsong than any previous ornithologist’, which composer is known for incorporating birdsong into his musical works, including Réveil des oiseaux, Catalogue d’oiseaux and La fauvette des jardins?
And the answer is: Olivier Messiaen. The winner is Phil Shaw. Your prizes will be with you very soon.
Thanks, as usual, for all the competition entries. To be in with a chance of winning our next prize — one of three copies of Horatio Clare’s Icebreaker: A Voyage Far North — make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list. The sign-up bar can be found in the top right-hand corner of this page.
