    'Melodies of the Nightingale for the Family' is focused on the family, and includes prayers and meditations for parents, children, marriage, youth and expectant mothers.

    While there are many ways in which to create loving and harmonious families, among the greatest aids in this process are prayer, meditation and the sense of spirituality that springs therefrom. It is my hope that the music on this CD, which was inspired by the sacred scriptures of the Bahá´í Faith, will be a means of bringing peace, joy and delight to families and homes everywhere.

    This is a follow up to "Melodies of the Nightingale", produced in 1997, my first album with Fiona Doomun and Michele Brown. This album includes several Hidden Words: short, meditational passages from the Baha´i Writings.

    It is my hope that the music on this CD, which was inspired by the sacred scriptures of the Baha'i Faith, will be a means of bringing peace, joy and delight to families everywhere.

lyrics

O God! Educate these children. These children are
the plants of Thine orchard, the flowers of Thy
meadow, the roses of Thy garden. Let Thy rain fall
upon them; let the Sun of Reality shine upon them with
Thy love. Let Thy breeze refresh them in order that
they may be trained, grow and develop, and appear in
the utmost beauty. Thou art the Giver. Thou art the
Compassionate.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, US Bahá’í Prayers, pages 35-36.

O Thou most glorious Lord! Make this little
maidservant of Thine blessed and happy; cause her to
be cherished at the threshold of Thy oneness and let
her drink deep from the cup of Thy love so that she
may be filled with rapture and ecstasy and diffuse
sweet-scented fragrance. Thou art the Mighty and the
Powerful, and Thou art the All-Knowing, the
All-Seeing.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, A Selection of Bahá’í Prayers and
Holy Writings, page 21.
