Reviews - What do customers think about Worship Feast Taize Songbook: Songs from the Taize Community?

Nice but small  Jan 12, 2007
Nice songs from Taize, but the book is very small. I thought there would be more songs.
 
Peaceful services  Feb 22, 2005
Taize style music is very popular among college-age worshippers today, and our Centre for University Ministry regularly offers Taize services. The hallmarks of Taize services are simplicity, peaceful spirituality, and music based upon the chant styles of the Taize monastery in France. Founded in the aftermath of the second World War, Taize is dedicated to peace and ecumenical action.

Taize music is both simple and sophisticated. Brother Roger, founder of Taize, seeks to add a prayerful element to music, and a musical element to prayer, believing firmly in the old dictum, 'those who sing, pray twice'.

The songs in this collection include melody lines for singers and chords for guitar or keyboard accompaniment. There is a CD that is available separately that will enhance the experience for groups, as well as serve as a guide for those who want to practice or sing on their own.

While many Taize chant tunes are adaptable to be sung in multiple parts, this book only has the primary melody line, without harmonic parts included. What is included, however, is alternate translations for many of the tunes. Some are presented in French, some in Spanish, and some in Latin. The Latin is not due to Catholic influence as much as it a shared language among many people's linguistic heritage while no longer being anyone's first language.

This small book is a rich expression, wonderfully presented.
