"Rabi wa Elahi": the collection of Franciscan liturgical songs in Arabic
For the first time, the writings of St Francis, translated into Arabic, become sacred songs for the liturgy and prayer. The project is the result of an idea of two Franciscans, students of theology from Syria, Fr. George and Fr. Johnny Jallouf, and has been developed thanks to the support of the Custody of the Holy Land. Today nine musical pieces with lyrics in Arabic and original music have been published in the collection called “Rabi waElahi” and can be listened to free of charge on Youtube, Spotify, Anghami (popular in the Arab world) and all the main musical platforms. The music was recorded in the Nazareth studio of Holy Land Sounds with live instruments.
