The Nightingale Sings The Nightingale Sings is an allegory set in Egypt during World War II and based on a Persian poet's philosophy about war, greed, and corruption and its resultant effect on the soul. Assigned to a parish in Giza and to the army base, the English priest, John, discharges his duties and finds employment for his flock while attending to the wounded and the dying on the battlefield at El-Alamein. John's childhood friend from Giza, a man by the name of Mustapha, has now risen to the head of a Sufi whirling dervishes order in Cairo. John embarks to Cairo in search of his long lost companion. Having found him, Mustapha invites John to partake in a mystic dance ceremony, which John gladly accepts. The ceremony is conducted to raise one's soul to new spiritual heights, thus taking John to an entirely new realm of understanding, thus enabling him to change the course of history. The Nightingale Sings offers more than entertainment. It establishes a message of freedom from affliction through an allegory that incorporates history with a whirlwind of adventure.
