The power of music and sounds from the natural world are known to help during challenging times.

To offer comfort and support during the current pandemic, BBC Archive, BBC Music and the Natural History Unit offer a selection of calming tracks and soundscapes for patients, care workers and families affected by Covid-19.

Mindful Mix

"There are times when, more than ever, it helps to steep ourselves in the music of the planet - the sounds of the wind and the water, the forests and the fields.
For all those who can’t be outside breathing in the beauty of our natural world, we want to bring some of its soothing sounds to you – blended with calming classical music which we hope will bring some much needed tranquillity."
