5.0 out of 5 stars A great spirit 20 Dec 2005
By Kurt Messick HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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, there are solos that are done in French, German, English and Italian, too.
Taize worship relies on psalms heavily, as well as periods of silence, Bible readings, and prayers. Some such pieces are included here.
The way Taize chants 'work' is that they are simple phrases and simple tunes that gradually reveal depth and sophistication by being repeated over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Inspiring, and Healing 2 July 2003
By Emily - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was browsing in a Catholic store when I heard this CD playing. I have never bought a so-called "religious" CD before (except for classical music) and I think that it is my love of classical music that initially attracted me to this music. This type of singing is a form of prayer which adds to its inspirational qualities. I also find that the repetition/harmony of the choir, the solos, and many of the songs have a soothing and thus, healing quality to them. My favorite tracks are 2) Toi, tu nous aimes/you love us (wonderful and calming for morning and evening reflection) 4) Tui amoris ignem 6) Misericordias Domini 7) Alleluia and 11) Herr, wohin sollen wir gehen? (God, to whom shall we go? - the latter is quite stirring). I also like the fact that the solos are sung in Latin, French, German, and English, etc. You don't have to be "conventionally" religious to admire this CD and the mission of Taize; you only need to have an appreciation of fine music and its spirituality.

The way Taize chants 'work' is that they are simple phrases and simple tunes that gradually reveal depth and sophistication by being repeated over and over. All chants presented in this text are put in multiple-part harmony (usually four-part), and some are marked to be done in rounds.

This recording is a rich expression, wonderfully presented. According to Brother Roger, all who follow this journey of the spirit remain alongside other people, adding their prayers and voices together. 'They do not separate prayer and commitment.'

5.0 out of 5 stars The Title Cut (#9) Is My Favorite Taize Hymn Ever 20 July 2010
By Aardvark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Bible says we are to sing to each other in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. This CD fits the bill perfectly. It will help you draw nearer to the Lord in personal worship, meditation, and private devotional times. This is awesome, peaceful, blessed music, much needed in a tumultuous world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual revival 11 Feb 2012
By sunnysmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this cd for a specific Taize hymn, and found myself deeply moved by the love that comes through with each offering. This is a great gift either to oneself or others for spiritual renewal. There is no preaching--just God reaching to humanity, and humanity responding in song.
