Pick of the Week treats your ear drums to a symphony of rare and unusual sounds. We've got the first snort of a new born lamb, the discreet sibilance of a genius sucking his teeth, and the giggles that you get when you're nibbled by fish. The Reverend Richard Coles treats us to the sound of music made out of ice; the Tiger Mother sings her Battle Hymn, and the Surgery brings us the devastating silent music of tears withheld.
