Our CD “At First Light” Volume 1 is now officially launched! This CD contains the 20 quotations revealed by Baha’u’llah which are featured in our Radiant Hearts lessons. It is US$9.99 and can be purchased and downloaded through CD Baby.
Please note the CD is only available in digital format at this time, but if you would like to purchase more than three hard copies then we may be able to ship some to you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
“At First Light” Volume 1 was created to aid families with young children to recite the Writings of Baha’u’llah every morn and eve. Therefore the quotations are short (once sentence each) and repeated several times, each track averaging one minute. One quotation can be selected to focus on memorizing each Baha’i month, plus there is a special selection for the period of Ayyam-i-Ha. If you focus on memorizing a song each month, you will have 20 quotations memorized by the end of the year!
We wish to acknowledge everyone who has supported us in creating this music, especially our parents who instilled in us a love of singing and playing instruments as we were growing up. We would also like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Karyn Robarts, who has sponsored the creation of the “At First Light” series. Without her generosity, this music would not have been professionally recorded at all. We thank her with all our hearts for the amazing gift of being able to share our music with you.
To celebrate the CD’s launch, last month we also invited all of you to participate in an online art exhibition. You can now see the 27 beautiful entries we received here which came from Australia, Canada, Croatia, Finland, France, Malaysia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
We hope those who entered the exhibition had a fun experience and that those of you who missed out this time around will join the exhibition in a few months time when we when “At First Light” Volume 2 is released!
Below is a portion of the submissions we received. Be sure to go to the Online Exhibition to see all of the art work plus the artists’ names, ages, countries, and the sweet descriptions they gave!
The three artists chosen at random to receive a free copy of our CD were: Helena from Croatia, Kamal from France, and Diego from Finland. Congratulations! Thanks again to everyone who participated. We hope you enjoy browsing the entries with your children and having some meaningful conversation about prayer.
This CD has been a labor of love over the past year, and we really hope you and your families enjoy listening to it. To read more about the CD, see our photo gallery, and more go to the Soulrise Melodies page.
Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy the music!
