How to describe the ecstatic song of larks? How the writers and poets have tried…

Skylarks are the heralds of our countryside. Their music is the quintessential sound of spring. The spirit of English pastoralism, they inspire poets, composers and farmers alike. In the trenches of World War I they were a reminder of the chattering meadows of home.

Perhaps you were up with the lark, or as happy as one. History has seen us poeticise and musicise the bird, but also capture and eat them. We watch as they climb the sky, delight in their joyful singing, and yet we harm them too.

The Soaring life of the Lark¬†explores the music and poetry; the breath-taking heights and struggle to survive of one of Britain’s most iconic songbirds.
