Double CD: The UnQuenchable Flame - A musical drama,   list of tracks

The UnQuenchable Flame - A musical drama.

"You can kill me as soon as you like, but you cannot stop the emancipation of women," said the beautiful dark-eyed young woman as she handed the executioner the silk scarf with which he brutally strangled her.

This Musical Drama is based on the true story of Tahirih, who gave her life so that women might be free from the yoke of oppression.

Tahirih's father recognized her bright and intuitive wisdom, and did the unthinkable, he, himself educated his daughter.

In 19th century Persia, women were regarded as having no souls, were forced to ear the veil, and not allowed to speak in the presence of men.
Tahirih, who fearlessly denounced the veil, polygamy, and the evil practices of the clergy, aroused the rage of the fanatic religious leaders, who enflamed the blood-thirsty populace.
She was sentenced to death at the age of 35, and brutally strangled, in the dark of the night, outside the enameled gates of Tehran.
But, do not think because Tahirih's body is gone, that her flame has been quenched. Her fire continues to blaze and will continue to inspire millions of souls yet unborn.
