First described in 1723 by western travellers visiting the Moroccan court, the Nightingale Tree used to entertain the sultans with its beautiful singing voice. In its hayday it directed a 30 piece orchestra but it fell silent in 1860; coincidentally the year of the first sound recording. However, every full moon it can still be heard humming a little tune.
