The Great Animal Orchestra is a symphony for orchestra and wild soundscapes composed by Richard Blackford and based on Bernie Krause's book of the same name, which was read on BBC Radio 4's Book of the Week and was where Blackford first heard it. Krause referred to biophony for the collective voices generated by the organisms in a given natural habitat and time and likens these layers of sounds to the layers and textures of an orchestra. Blackford integrated some of these extraordinary sounds into an orchestral palette to create this remarkable work.

Saint-Saens's Carnival of the Animals celebrates twelve of teh best loved and essential wildlife species to be found on Earth, with appropriate stories to accompany each. It contains some of the most exquisite and much-loved music of all time. Beethoven's 6th Symphony, the Pastoral, is full of the sounds of nature, including bird calls, bubbling brooks, a thunderstorm and walks in the countryside.
