Omid Gollmer’s Nightingale Sessions

July 23, 2018, in Music > Recording Artist, by

Omid Gollmer is a musician based in Stuttgart, Germany. In commemoration of the bicentenary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah, he created several videos where he put excerpts from the Baha’i Writings to music. The video series is titled “The Nightingale Sessions”. In this video, Omid and Irena sing one of Baha’u’llah’s Hidden Words in German.  

To watch all of “The Nightingale Sessions”, please visit Omid Gollmer’s YouTube channel.

Here is the quotation sung in German, followed by its English translation:

“O Sohn des Geistes! Mit der freudigen Botschaft des Lichtes grüße Ich dich: Freue dich! Zum Hofe der Heiligkeit rufe Ich dich: Wohne darin, damit du ewig in Frieden lebest!”

– Baha’u’llah

“O SON OF SPIRIT! With the joyful tidings of light I hail thee: rejoice! To the court of holiness I summon thee; abide therein that thou mayest live in peace for evermore.”

– Baha’u’llah
