Ed Nightingale and his fellow teammates are not the best players on the rugby, football or cricket pitches. So when it comes time to challenge the Badgers, the Bucks, and the Squirrels in this year’s Champions’ Cup, Ed goes to ask for expert advice from some famous athletes including English rugby legend George Kruis, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and cricket World Cup winner Mark Wood. The superstars each give Ed different advice, except for one main thing: they all say ‘work together as a team.’ While Ed and the Nightingales don’t win any of their matches in the Champions’ Cup, they do better than they ever have before. And when a violent storm threatens to cancel the Champions’ Cup award ceremony, the birds band together and with their brilliant song, fight off the storm. The Nightingales might not be the best sports team, but they prove that by working together, anything can be accomplished!

A celebrated figure in myth, song, and story, the nightingale has captivated the imagination for millennia, its complex song evoking a prism of human emotions, --from melancholy to joy, from the fear of death to the immortality of art. But have you ever listened closely to a nightingale's song? It's a strange and unsettling sort of composition--an eclectic assortment of chirps, whirs, trills, clicks, whistles, twitters, and gurgles. At times it is mellifluous, at others downright guttural. It is a rhythmic assault, always eluding capture. What happens if you decide to join in? As philosopher and musician David Rothenberg shows in this searching and personal new book, the nightingale's song is so peculiar in part because it reflects our own cacophony back at us. As vocal learners, nightingales acquire their music through the world around them, singing amidst the sounds of humanity in all its contradictions of noise and beauty, hard machinery and soft melody. Rather than try to capture a sound not made for us to understand, Rothenberg seeks these musical creatures out, clarinet in tow, and makes a new sound with them. He takes us to the urban landscape of Berlin--longtime home to nightingale colonies where the birds sing ever louder in order to be heard--and invites us to listen in on their remarkable collaboration as birds and instruments riff off of each other's sounds. Through dialogue, travel records, sonograms, tours of Berlin's city parks, and musings on the place animal music occupies in our collective imagination, Rothenberg takes us on a quest for a new sonic alchemy, a music impossible for any one species to make alone. In the tradition of The Hidden Life of Trees and The Invention of Nature, Rothenberg has written a provocative and accessible book to attune us ever closer to the natural environment around us.
