Definition of woodnote in English:
A natural and untrained musical note resembling the song of a bird.
- The low woodnotes of a roller served as a substitute for Gloria in Excelsis following our final response to Adam's versicles.
- A year later, in ‘L' Allegro ’, the delphic element had disappeared, and Milton's cheerful man heard ‘Sweetest Shakespeare, fancy's child Warble his native woodnotes wild’.
- But I often warble my native woodnotes wild in my bath while plying the loofah, at the car wheel, perhaps in a sunburst of joy at finding a parking space in Edinburgh and, sometimes, to add a crackling, catarrhal accompaniment to some oleaginous operatic tenor on radio or TV.
