Earth Day 2020

2020 will probably be the adjective of choice for some years to come. “How’s it going?” “2020 mate.” Bedded down between the bouts of anxiety and hypochondria, the Nest Collective produced once of the most beautiful online experiences of lockdown. Singing With Nightingales (created by the wonderful Sam Lee) went fully digital, with a host of talented musicians and poets responding to the complexity and purity of the Nightingale’s song, streamed live from a thicket somewhere in Sussex. The result was a contemplative act of sheer beauty, something to be dipped into again and again when the soul needs respite from the stresses of daily life.
