Nature in Music

We asked our staff for their favourite songs that evoke memories and feelings, merry and melancholy, of the natural world—ones that celebrate its beauty and wonder, and ones that lament about the environmental crises we’re grappling with today. And here are some of their suggestions.

Do you have favourite tunes that moan about or celebrate nature? We’d love to hear about them! Let us know in the comments.

  1. Wonderful effort. Mine would have to be pandit Nikhil Banerjee’s rendition of Megh Malhar. The evocation of a monsoon storm is overpowering. And of course Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony.
