Let­ter of the week The sound of si­lence

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN re­ply to J. M. Pet­ti­grew of Hert­ford­shire (Let­ters, De­cem­ber 28), who asked us which child­hood sounds we miss, mine is sim­ple—the sound of si­lence. We are so bom­barded now with noise: muzak ev­ery­where we go, blar­ing tele­vi­sions and mu­sic play­ing over ac­tors speak­ing, which drowns out what they’re say­ing. There are so many more ex­am­ples. What­ever hap­pened to quiet time? It’s sur­pris­ing how much one can hear of the nat­u­ral world when the ex­tra­ne­ous noises are oblit­er­ated. Louise Eden, Hert­ford­shire

The writer of the let­ter of the week will win a bot­tle of Pol Roger Brut Réserve Cham­pagne
