Rejoice with Exceeding Gladness – a gift song for Ridvan
A few years ago I released a song titled, ‘Rejoice with Exceeding Gladness’ – in honor of the Festival of Ridvan. I found a beautiful quotation revealed by Bahá’u’lláh for Ridvan and asked six friends around the world to sing it in six different languages representing all continents (except Antartica!). Each verse is followed by the chorus of ‘Allah’u’Abha’ where everyone can join in.
I have just completed making a video for the full song using beautiful photographs of Bahá’í iTemples from around the world. (See below)
Last year I had the pleasure of making a slideshow with photos of the Ridvan garden to accompany all 11 languages for communities around the world to enjoy (see below).
A special thanks Larry Magee who played the guitars and to Jarome Matthew for editing all the languages and making sure they were mixed and mastered professionally. I’m also extremely grateful to Adeeb Afshar for sharing several of his beautiful photos from the Ridvan garden and also Shira Trick for her lovely video of the fountain. If you listen closely at the end, you can hear a slight trickle of the water flowing from the fountain.
