Taize study Feb 24, 2008
This book makes it easy to develop and offer a Taize-like service. Coupled with the Taize music book, just about all of the elements are there to create a service.
Taize for Teens Sep 30, 2007
I was pleased with the layout of the book and the ease of use. I did not realize before hand that it was written primarily for use with young people, so some adjustments might need to be made for more mature groups. I was a bit disappointed with the accompanying cd. Each selection is sung through one time and then the repetitions are instrumental only. This in itself would not be bad, but the melody line is often not clearly played. Anyone unfamiliar with the songs or who cannot easily carry a tune without a clear melody line (like me) will find using these in actually worship settings more difficult. However, I have enjoyed just listening to the music.
Contemplative and useful Aug 23, 2006
I enjoy the contemplative style of Taize. This book breaks is down for persons new to Taize, which is great. It is useful for personal or group taize meditation. However, I was disappointed the song book was not included, nor could I find it on this site. The song book would be helpful. It does include a good cd.
nothing special Mar 11, 2006
This little book has only a hint of the flavor of Taize. There is no there there
