(based on a vocal setting by Norwegian performer, Knut Reiersrud)
The song is a lullaby, that universal culture of feeling shared between mother and child. Accompanied by a cello, the piece opens with a hauntingly beautiful solo sung in the original Arabic (a transliteration is in the score.) The piano joins and then the choir, singing first the theme about international peace in English, then moving on to the Arabic. A listen to the recording will quickly demonstrate the intrigue of this piece.
