Background

A description of the experience

The Eye of the Wind – Sir Peter Scott

Sound has a powerful effect on man's emotions, perhaps more powerful than sight, and whether the sound is of man's designing or of nature's, it may bring us near to tears by its beauty.

Heard above the rushing of the wind, the cry of wild geese can be overwhelmingly sad.

The nightingale and the blackcap and the curlew are nature's soloists but the geese are her chorus, as rousing, over the high sand, as the 'Sanctus' of Bach's B minor Mass.

As they flight at dawn one can imagine that each successive skein brings in the fugue, Pleni sunt coeli . . .
