 At the premier in October of 2017, the participants were a diverse mixture of musicians and singers from several different cultures and with choral and ensemble experiences varying from the rank beginner who could not read music to seasoned performers.

This was a commissioned work by the Bahai's of Nassau County, Florida, for their "Unity of Light"  festival celebrating the 200th anniversary of one of their founders, the Baha'u''llah. 

The following is a comment to all the performers of the premier from one of the organizers of the event responsible for the commissioning:  Saturday [the day of the festival] was so special!  I find no words to express my appreciation for all that each of you have done to mak the BEAUTIFUL, INSPIRING, and UPLIFTING music that added so much meaning and joy for all those attending the Festival.  You have actually made a dream come true for me.  For quite a while I have wanted to  have Baha'i Scripture set to music...I was not too sure exactly what I wanted when I approached Brenda, but she so understood the concept, that from my awkward explanation and Baha'u''llah's deep, inspiring Words, she has created something of unbelievable beauty!  But to translate the composition from paper to sound required your disciplined time and effort (as well as her expert conducting and sacrificial hours.)  And, voila!  There it was:  a delight for ear and soul! 

Other comments from participants and observers:  What a privilege to be a part of the chorus and to sing your beautiful composition!.. Thank you, Brenda, for your wonderful composition and your patience as we learned it...Cried my eyes out.  Still crying.  So awesome!  So wonderful, Brenda.  All worth the enormous amount of time you put into it...It's an honor to sing your masterpiece...This was a once in a lifetime event to celebrate the 200th birthday of Baha-u-llah & The Bab.  Baha'is all over the world thank you for such a beautiful song for The Blessed Beauty Baha-u-llah.
