Stamp of the week

I think I mentioned last week how disappointed I was with the look of this year’s first class Royal Mail stamp. Well this week I received my first letter with one on it.

However, it was what was inside this envelope that was special. A cd from Mark Peter Wright.

I was put onto the path of ‘Where Once We Walked’ by the Twitter stream of Cheryl Tipp, wildlife sounds curator at the British Library –  her Twitter feed is a constant source of audio gold and I recommend everyone to follow her.

‘Where Once We walked ‘ is a sound composition based on recordings gathered from the Polish homes of child Holocaust survivors who came to the Lake District in 1945. It’s an amazing piece of work – the sounds draw you in and take you on a fascinating journey, a really vivid experience. I can’t recommend it enough.
