I always enjoy encountering a word that I’ve never read or heard before.
Susurration. provides this meaning:
Whispering or rustling.
‘the susurration of the river’
‘It settled to the ground with a soft susurration like stirring leaves.’
‘Something beautiful but so far away-like the music of a faraway violin or the susurration of a distant wave.’
Late Middle English from late Latin susurratio(n-), from Latin susurrare ‘to murmur, hum’, from susurrus ‘whisper’.

      I haven’t read much Pratchett, which is another oversight that will blow my kid’s minds. They have read him, so I don’t feel like a complete failure.
