What is Taizé?
Looking for a contemplative service?Taizé blends simple elements of prayer, song, and silence. The songs are taken from scripture and are simple one or two-line refrains, repeated multiple times. As the refrain is repeated, instrumental and vocal harmonies are brought in creating a rich texture, all while remaining focused on a simple lyric.
The history of Taizé
Taizé has an interesting history. Coming out of the desolation of WWII, a man known as Brother Roger found a small community of Christians in the French town of Taizé. Seeking to create a community of healing and refuge after the war, Brother Roger started the Taizé community to create a space for people to find God in the midst of brokenness. From this worshiping community, a very intimate and contemplative service evolved.
