The Crooked River Choral Project is a collection of artful choral music composed specifically with music teaching and learning in mind. Our selections are first and foremost beautiful pieces of music. They are rooted in solid pedagogical thinking, providing music educators with rich teaching opportunities through quality literature. This series offers music with lyrics that inspire the human spirit, nurturing the best in musicians of all levels. Each title includes a CD with rehearsal recordings (including individual voice parts sung by both an adult female and by children, and an accompaniment only track) and CD-Rom with reproducible scores.
#CRCP4 Volume 4: “Hazrat Bibi Maryam: A Song for Peace" by Zuleikha is a simple song. Using Arabic text, it praises Mary, Mother of Jesus, as a doorway for remembering all the mothers on the earth, those who came before and those who will come after. The refrain means “Peace be with you.” This song came as an inspiration for greater love and harmony in the world. An alternative English/Arabic text is offered for environments where the text about Mary may be considered inappropriate. This alternative text honors mothers everywhere.
