This Cantata is scored for a baritone solo, mixed choir and string orchestra. The first of four movements was originally written in 1981, the other movements being added in 1998 with some revisions in 2009.

The first two movements are settings of texts by the composer, entitled Divine Soul and Divine Manifestations and asks questions about the nature of the soul and body of Spiritual Messengers (Manifestations), such as Moses, Christ, Mohammed, etc. The last two set texts by Bahá’u’lláh, who is the latest Manifestation and founder of the Bahá’í Faith. These are entitled Divine Message and Divine Guidance. Divine Message, set for the baritone solo, suggests that mankind will never truly understand the nature of these Divine Manifestations, and Divine Guidance stresses that we should quench all error so that we might stand a chance of reaching God.
