Both pieces are using texts written by the Persian poetess Tahirih, whose story is told in this programme.
To mark the Anniversary of the Birth of Bahá'u'lláh, the Australian parliament will host a special reception, for which I had the honour of contributing the music. Ayse Goknur Shanal (soprano) and Roya Safaei (piano) will perform 'Glorious Days', and a delegation of the Sydney Temple Choir, reinforced by singers from the Melbourne-based Perfect Chord choir, will sing 'O God, My God'. The event will be live-streamed!... See MoreSee Less
