I am so excited to share with you the official release of ‘The Divine Mystery’ – my new booklet/album in honor of the centenary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá!
The booklet-album is still available on my shop and in addition the music can now be downloaded on my bandcamp music page.
A reminder that each booklet-album comes with a unique code to download the full digital album.
I also wanted to share more about the inspiration for the music.
In 2017, I created an album in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, entitled ‘The Ancient Beauty’. In 2019, I was inspired to record ‘The Exalted One’, a companion album for the 200th anniversary of the Birth of the Báb. Both albums had a similar design motif based on the gates to the Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh and the Shrine of the Báb.
As this year is the 100th anniversary of the Ascension of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, I felt the urge to produce an album in His honor, thereby completing a musical trilogy in remembrance of these three Sacred Figures. I also wanted a befitting name for the album that would call to mind the beautiful qualities of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. After consulting with friends around the world, I chose the name ‘The Divine Mystery’, an allusion to the title ‘The Mystery of God’ bestowed upon ‘Abdu’l-Bahá by Bahá’u’lláh.
Creating these three albums has been one of the highlights of my musical career (such a unique and special time in history will never come again in my lifetime) and I am extremely grateful to all the friends, family members and patrons who have made it possible.
So far I have released 5 of the songs from the album ‘The Divine Mystery’ with accompanying videos. Below are the links to the videos in case you missed them.
