Ya Oum Allah (Oh Mother of God) by the Lebanese singer Fairouz.
The song is an Arabic Christian hymn in honour of Mary, who is very revered by the various Christian denominations of Lebanon, as well as Muslims.
In Lebanon the feast of the Annunciation is celebrated by both Christians and Muslims under the title ‘Together around Mary, Our Lady’. This makes Mary a unique symbol of unity between the two religious communities.
The Feast of the Annunciation is one of the four “Quarter Days” in the Church. These are days which fall around the equinoxes or solstices, and mark the beginnings of the natural seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
These Quarter Days were Christian feast days used in medieval times to mark “quarters” for legal purposes. The other days Quarter Days are the Nativity of St. John the Baptist (June 24), Michaelmas (September 29), and Christmas (December 25).
