HSM- tidingsTIDINGS OF LIGHT

Description

This CD provides glimpses into the journey of the soul, into the true lover’s response to the call of the Beloved. Eight of the ten songs are selections from the spiritual Writings of Baha’u’llah and Abd’ul-Baha. These divinely beautiful lyrics are set to the music of the Celtic Harp and Caroline’s voice, at its best interpreting mystic poetry and sacred verses. The effect is heightened by the addition of the sensitive and moving piano arrangements of Anna Hostman, with emotive violin and descant recorder. (52 minutes)

O MOST MIGHTY OCEAN!HSM - O Most Mighty Ocean cover

Description

Selected Passages from the Kitab-i-Aqdas. With utmost reverence the choice Words of Baha’u’llah’s Most Holy Book are sung in “the most melodious of tones”. The music of the harp lifts the soul into a realm of meditative reflection, and evokes the sensation that “the Kitab-i-Aqdas itself beareth eloquent testimony to the loving providence of God.” This recording commemorates the Holy Year, a century since the ascension of Baha’u’llah, and celebrates the translation into English of the Kitab-i-Aqdas. It includes such favourites as The Ocean of My Words, O Peoples of the Earth! and The Eye of My Loving-Kindness, and is very suitable for private reflection, devotional meetings and Holy Days.
