We are super excited to be re-launching our CD next month with newly re-mastered tracks and a beautiful new design that will be printed in a digipak format with an 8-page booklet. This new CD contains all 20 quotations and 20 prayers that existed in volumes 1 and 2 of the previous albums.
If you’ve been around here for a while, you may remember we had two art exhibitions to celebrate the first two volumes of our CD, based on the quotation that inspired our music:
Every day at first light, ye gather the Bahá’í children together and teach them the communes and prayers. This is a most praiseworthy act, and bringeth joy to the children’s hearts: that they should, at every morn, turn their faces toward the Kingdom and make mention of the Lord and praise His Name, and in the sweetest of voices, chant and recite. These children are even as young plants, and teaching them the prayers is as letting the rain pour down upon them, that they may wax tender and fresh, and the soft breezes of the love of God may blow over them, making them to tremble with joy.
(‘Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 139)
These two exhibitions featured children’s art.
We have decided to hold another competition for this new CD launch, but this time we would like to invite anyone over 15 years old to participate!
Whether you are a mother, father, grandparent, children’s class teacher, or just a general supporter of spiritual education of children, we hope you will enjoy colouring in this beautiful colouring page created by Kertu Kelem and that it will become a reminder to you reflect often on this beautiful wish by ‘Abdu’l-Baha.
Each person who submits an entry will be sent an MP3 of one of my personal favourites from the 40 tracks on the new album, “I have wakened,” to thank you for participating. One person will win a copy of our new album, sent to them in the mail!
Entries are open to anyone over 15 years old, no matter where you live in the world. By submitting your work, you agree to having a photo posted on this website (attributed to your first name and country of residence).
