How Happy for the Little Birds is the title track of the album by Laoise O'Brien and is part of a multi-disciplinary project with the artist Lorna Donlon. An exhibition of collages inspired by the recording ran throughout the 2011 Kilkenny Arts Festival. The project received a tremendous response.
The recording brings the listener through a year of birdsong with tunes from Ireland, England and beyond. The birds featured on the CD are mostly common to Ireland and Britain.
