BES INSHAFAT BI JAMAL (HMC2526) is a setting of an original Arabic poem (pronunciation guide included) by Raneer Sfeir. Composer Alex Favazza sets the Arabic for mixed chorus divisi with piano and optional horn. Calling for new beginnings, redemption, and healing, the lovely work might be used as a graduation anthem, for an international festival, Earth Day, International AIDS Day, or at contest. The text may challenge some but would be well worth the investment.
