An impassioned piece set to a text by Bahá'u'lláh, founder of the Bahá'í faith. The text is exemplary of this faith that seeks to unite the world in peace and understanding. The title suggests the time to do this is upon us. The piece is being published with the blessing of the leaders of this faith. It received a marvelous premier by the recording choir listed below. An excellent piece for the mature, large choir.

"This is one of the finest choral settings of a Baha'i text by an accomplished composer who, though not himself a Baha'i member, was moved by this passage of Baha'i scripture. I have performed this piece in two choirs and marvel at its power to move the listeners and thrill the singers."
review by: William Collins, Washington, DC - Metropolitan Washington Baha'i Chorale

"Exquisite and absolutely beautiful harmonies. Stunning and profound setting of the words of Baha'u'llah: This is the Day in which God’s most excellent favours have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things. It is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving-kindness. "
