Who is the Fountain of Love choir


Who is the Fountain of Love choir?

The Fountain of Love choir is a Jordanian choir that started during Christmas time in 2002 to perform Christmas carols. The first official performance was in Easter 2003. The Choir expanded over the years where it currently includes around 80 members, between vocalists and musicians of different age groups and from different denominations, including Muslims, united all together in seeking the purpose of glorifying Christ and honoring our Holy Mother Mary through music and chant.

The choir repertoire includes western and eastern classical, byzantine and modern chants, and since its foundation, the choir has performed in various lively concerts and masses in Jordan and all over the world. In 2013, the choir expanded further by establishing The Fountain of Love Choir House, and became part of the Catholic Council (See attachment for details). The founder and the conductor, Mr. Tomeh Jbarah has studied conducting at the National Music Conservatory of Jordan, and composed around 50 original musical pieces.



The Name of the Choir


The Name of the Choir:

Fountain of Love (Yanbou al Mahaba) is inspired from the everlasting fountain of love that flowed from Christs side pierced by the spear. We, as a team, pray that our chants be a fountain of love for others, to develop their spiritual life and to welcome God into their hearts through prayer in harmonious songs.

The first Jordanian Oratorio (Christmas and Easter parts)

Our choir has recently composed the first Jordanian Oratorio, under the title of "Jesus the Fountain of Love", approximately lasting 2:15 hours, with 25 pieces, which focus on the Story of the Nativity & Salvation, and the Life of Jesus Christ. It was performed in Jordan for the first time in 2015 (Easter part) -2016 (Christmas part). FOL completed this work in 5 months which composed by members of the choir, with influences from liturgical music and arrangement by composers/arrangers from Jordan, Iraq, and Sweden. As many people perceive the Middle East to unfortunately be a place most often linked with violence and war, however this oratorio has proven that it can also be a place of musical creativity and innovation.
