We Are One  for a cappella choir

In We Are One, Ranjbaran has set the words of Persian poet Sa’di in its original language.  The text is one of the most celebrated and widely recited poems in Farsi.  It was chosen to be included in the Voyager spacecraft as the sole representation of the poet’s native Iran, and its beautiful text illustrates the bond of humanity and the importance of empathy for others.
