Songs and Prayers from Taize

by Jacques Berthier. GIA Publications, 1994.

A compilation of songs and prayers from the Taize community in France. The contemplative repetition of phrases in the chant-like music is a popular feature of worship in some congregations. The booklet offers suggestions for preparing a time of common prayer and commentary on worship practices such as silence, the song of light, and prayer around the cross. A participant's edition and an accompanist's edition are also available. See also the Taize community website at
