Tidings of Light


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, the emotional violin of Rhiannon Schmitt and Kate Gibson Oswald’s bird-like descant recorder.
