I've just found this wonderful song and I was wondering what does it mean:

I love Fairuz.  There is no other voice like hers.

The second song is obviously about the Mother of God.  Aside from that, I don't know.  Maybe some of our Arabic speakers could help us out.

I think this site has the lyrics to the first song:

http://www.lyricsandsongs.com/song/698400.html

Knowing the title of the second song would help in finding its lyrics.  Would the title be "Ya Maryam el Bakr?"  That is on a Christmas album she did.  I can't find the lyrics, though.

The first song is secular.  It's a love song.

The second song, though, is what seems like a beautiful hymn to the Mother of God.  I seem to think I've heard it before.  If anyone could point us toward a translation and transliteration, that would be a wonderful thing.

Thank you, Salpy.
Yes, that is the one, "Ya Maryam el Bakr"

Thank you!

For some reason, the link to the second video doesn't connect to it anymore.  I did, however, find another link to a different video with the same beautiful hymn to the Mother of
God:

Actually just a slight correction on what I said now that I've read the lyrics.  It's not exactly a love song, but rather a sad song about unrequited love.  Still though the point is is that it's not religious as you might expect from her other songs like "Ya Mariam el Bikr."

God bless.

It seems Fairouz has sung and recorded a number of hymns to the Mother of God.  I think one of them was used by Mel Gibson in The Passion.  Does anyone know if there is a CD with all or most of her hymns to the Holy Mother? 

Another question:  I've heard that one of her parents was Syriac Orthodox.  Does anyone know if that is true?

Yes indeed.  Mel Gibson used "Ana Alom ElHazinah" which you can get here:

http://tasbeha.org/mp3/Songs/Arabic/Fairuz_Good_Friday,_Eastern_Sacred_Songs.html

And yes.  I've heard that one of her parents was Syriac Orthodox, but I can't verify this.
