Song of Celebration – Virtual Soul Choir

The Baha’is of Ballarat have commissioned a special virtual musical project. This song puts these words of Baha’u’llah to a stirring choral melody: “Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face…Be an ornament to the countenance of truth…a breath of life to the body of mankind.” This melody was originally composed for the bicentenary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah but was produced as a virtual choral project to celebrate the centenary of the Baha’i Faith in Australia. 

You can read all about this project and how it came to be in this article from one of Ballarat’s Baha’is, Dellaram Vreeland: Integrating Arts Into Community Life: The Experience of the Baha’is of Ballarat
