This was one of the last songs I recorded for ‘The Divine Mystery’. I felt the album was not complete without adding a couple of pieces from the recently published translations of ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s prayers and writings. In particular, the poem that is the basis for ‘Solace of My Soul’ has a beautiful rhyme and I was excited at the opportunity to set it to music.
As the cello is one of my favorite instruments, I couldn’t resist adding it to the piece (see photo of cellist below). Brenda, the cellist, looks young but she has been playing the cello for over 20 years and is so very talented! I would love to hear your thoughts and impressions.
