Experience the pure sounds of the sea with this audio download, Waves: The Sounds of Britain's Shores. From the gentle lapping of water on a Cornish beach to the powerful crashing of waves on a rocky shore, this collection of recordings explores the idea that each beach has its own signature sound and demonstrates the contrasting nature of Britain's shoreline.

"The BL excels at this sort of unclassifiable thing and I love them for it (as I do the walled sanctuary of the St John Wilson building in London, and that in bl.uk, their own high-level domain, there is a way in which a library is on a par with a government). These recordings are best thought of as sound art, and act as both documentation and interpretation, but also a celebration of the British coast in all its glorious, cold dampness." (Chloe Evans, Caught by the River)
