This week's Sonic Moment of Calm takes you to the sun-blanched playing fields of Hawkes Bay for the sound of a boys' cricket game. We think the muffled thud of willow hitting leather, the gentle parental applause and distant cries of "catch it" are quite charming, especially when mixed with a delightful "Prelude and Yodel" by Simon Jeffes, performed by the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Why not listen back in your own time, or share with a friend?
