"the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not"

Thus Caliban describes the musical riches of Prospero's magic island. Many productions of the play opt for an isle full to bursting with "noises". Guy Woolfenden's attractive score takes its lead from the second line of the same speech.
