About Taizé

Brother Roger founded the Taizé Community during World War II as a sanctuary for Jewish refugees fleeing persecution and probable death. Ever since, the Community has continued its mission of providing a spiritual haven for pilgrims of many backgrounds and cultures. Its simple daily liturgies feature profoundly beautiful, yet broadly accessible, sung prayers. Today, the music of Taizé is cherished around the globe by Christians seeking to deepen contemplative prayer in community, especially on behalf of peace and reconciliation among all peoples.

The pattern for sung daily prayer at Taizé is quite simple: Songs, Prayers, Scriptures, and silence. All offered as prayer on behalf of the world.

  

About Taize: Adapted from Elise Eslinger in The Upper Room Worshipbook Accompaniment and Worship Leader edition, p. 518, “Sung Prayer in the Spirit of Taizé.”
