Announcing a new Compilation!
The Divine Melody: Song of the Mystic Dove, compiled by Lorraine Manifold, is a collection of gems from the Writings of the Bahá’í Faith that refer to the Word of God as music emanating from the Mystic Dove or the Nightingale of Paradise. This beautiful and mystical concept refers not only to the Divine Word as a melody but also to the spiritual calling for us to spread the Divine Word in song and to lift up our voices to the praise and glorification of God.
