Format: Audio CD
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 by Brother Roger, who died in a prayer service in the midst of the community in August 2005, 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 of Taize are designed to be sung by those who have difficulty carrying a tune, as well as those whose training and background in music extends to high levels.
This recording contains many of the best Taize chants. Given the international outreach of Taize (it is a great pilgrimage site for people all over the world), the chants tend to be sung 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. Brother Roger reclaimed Latin as a language for the monastery so that no one 'living' language would claim a dominance over others. However, this disc does include some of the pieces in English, also - it is a feature of Taize chant that it can be adapted to other languages very easily.
Taize worship relies on psalms heavily, as well as periods of silence, Bible readings, and prayers. Some such pieces are included here.

I greatly appreciate the work of Taizé and their inclusive, contemplative music. This recording is a useful introduction to some of their more well-known chants. Alas, it does not quite do them justice: as a live recording, presumably using rather amateurish equipment, it is noisy and the poor balance is very off-putting. Indeed, the renditions themselves have several drifts in pitch and wrong notes: while I'm sure this is fine for those looking to recreate an experience of having been there, for general listening it's not quite good enough.

This is one of those music that brings the eternity of heaven to your doorstep, I wonder why people dont feel how others feel about music like this then GOD inspired me with a perfect answer which i write to you with a bold letter, it is because THEY DO NOT HAVE THE NEW LIFE WHICH THE HOLY SPIRIT IMPARTS IN THE LIFE OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. THEY DO NOT RESPOND TO SUCH GLORIOUS MUSIC BECAUSE THE LIFE OF CHRIST IS NOT IN THEM.

Alleluia arrived quickly and is beautifully peaceful music. Just had to give it a little clean.
