Saat A'rahman
it is a Yemenite wedding sung that was sung to the much too young bride before her marriage. it is a painful dialogue between the young bride and her father, then between her and her mother. In her sadness of leaving her safe parents home to an unknown destiny to go to her future husbands home, she asks her mother for protection, and her father to please not listen to her at this hour of mercy and not give her away to a stranger. 'oh father? how could you give your daughter away? at the very same time that you bless me for good night'. I tried to give that bride (of many in many counties) a clear voice. as they voice was very often muted and ignored. the arrangement is more western classical and that is to emphasise the idea and the heavy feeling.
