Virtual European Baha’i Choir – “Gather All the People” (Naw Ruz 2021)

March 22, 2021, in Music > Choir, by

“Gather All the People” is a virtual choir project in honor of Naw-Ruz. It was put together by the European Baha’i Choir and it features 44 singers from across Europe and a cellist. It is the first virtual project created by the European Baha’i Choir.

The lyrics of the song are based on this excerpt of a prayer by Abdu’l-Baha:

Gather all people beneath the shadow of Thy bounty and cause them to unite in harmony, so that they may become as the rays of one sun, as the waves of one ocean, and as the fruit of one tree.

Abdu’l-Baha
