Jennie, do you mean a recording of an actual nightingale singing, or a song about nightingales? (as in, My sweet heart come along, won't you hear the fond song, the sweet notes of the nightingale flow; you shall hear the fond tale of the sweet nightingale as she sings in the valley below)

Two for the price of one: The Cuckoo And The Nightingale sung by Mary Humphreys.
Or did you mean a birdsong recording?

And there is a Nautical Nightingale (A Ship Wreck) in the DT

And there IS an old recording of a Nightingale singing while someone plays a cello in a garden - Sometime in the Nineteen thirties !

It needs to be an actual recording of the bird singing - I'm asking on behalf of someone in the music department at the school where I work.

found those here

...including this:"The British Library has a Listen to nature website with 400 audio extracts including many interesting bird sounds. Check out Nightingale (a 1910 recording, "the first published recording of a bird") under "Wrens, Chats and Thrushes," where you will also find a very nice Musician Wren. On the site is Jeffrey Boswall's Language of Birds, "an introduction to how, why, and when birds communicate."

Bill's second sight revealed 10 nightingale-thrushes but I have no idea which is relevant. I've been informed the Persian name for the nightingale is bulbul and there's a few of them around as well but I don't know the correct binomial.

The Willy Wagtail has been called the Australian nightingale - its night time song is exquisite.

Bulbul is the Persian name, absolutely correct. In Hebrew, at least, it's also a little children's euphemism for a male reprodutive organ.

Jennie

this may be too late, but i think, considering the beauty of the birdsong in question, that its never too late...

1. go to FreeSound.org and type 'nightingale' into their search line
they have many examples, a few of which run to a half hour

2. NickPenny.com      has a CD of birdsong, including a superb nightingale track; teh same track can be heard on YouTube

3. The Birders Market & Birding-radio.co.uk      has an entire CD devoted to nightingale song

nightengales are in the U.S. too.
and i have often stood near them and recorded their song..
on cassette, and video tape...
it was a rare treat to hear them,
but i might not appreciate them quite
as much if they were right outside my
window going at it for hours and hours!
(oh i guess i am thinking of mocking birds!)

this place is a good source for bird songs..
http://www.birds.cornell.edu/
and my last 2 radio shows featured songs by
and about birds...four hours filled with this!
Ther is one song where the nightengale
features prominently is "A Morning in May"
or "Fiddling Soldier" as done by James Taylor,
Jean Ritchie, Peggy Seeger, and many others.

there are several links to audio files here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightingale

there is another UK folk singer who has done
an album dedicated to birds...birds in folk song
by Derek 'Giff' Gifford
as has Laurie Lewis who did an album as a
benefit for Audubon Society Sanctuary.
