Taize Service

 

Background to a Taizé service.
The Taizé Community is an ecumenical monastic order in France who originated from about thirty countries across the world. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schutz. The music of Taizé emphasizes simple phrases, usually lines from psalms, other pieces from Scripture or from liturgy. It is repeated many times and sometimes sung in canon.
