Baha’i Blog Presents 11 Songs from The European Baha’i Choral Festival 2019

February 5, 2020, in Articles > Music, by

The 2019 European Baha’i Choral Festival was held from May 29 – June 2 at the Baha’i House of Worship in Langenhain, Germany. At this, the second European Baha’i Choral Festival to date, over a hundred participants came together to sing, share music with others and to strengthen the bonds of fellowship and harmony amongst Baha’is and their friends across Europe.

We’ve created a playlist featuring 11 songs performed as part of the festival. The songs were composed by a diversity of Baha’i composers, were conducted by a variety of musicians, and are in English, Albanian, Arabic, Finnish, Swedish, French, Spanish and German. All are based on excerpts from the Baha’i Writings.

You can listen to all the songs here on our Soundcloud page or watch the songs being performed here on our YouTube channel.

For more information about the European Baha’i Choral Festival, check out their website.

Oh, the whole world would be Baha’i! Why does that go on for so long? It is so wonderful! When I hear these wonderful chorales, I want to shout to the whole world: Hurry up, and come quickly to Baha’u’llah! Why are people so clumsy too?
