I'm a Scottish sacred musician, interspiritual minister and singer songwriter now living in rural Vermont.  These songs & reflections are my soul's way of making sense of the beauty, vulnerability and endless richness of this human life. It's a gift and a pleasure to share them with you.

Taizé-Inspired Sacred Chant

(EDT, UTC-04) (EDT, UTC-04)

On zoom

Join Rev Simon Ruth de Voil on the third Monday of the month via Zoom for this Taizé inspired service of contemplative chanting that honors the Christian & Jewish traditions.

Taizé is an ecumenical abbey in France with an emphasis on simplicity, reconciliation, and kindness. In the 1950s the prior commissioned a composer to set many of the core teachings into simple chants that the pilgrims and youth who flock to Taizé could participate in voicing. The result was the birth of a new form of monastic chanting that is beautiful, meditative, accessible, and sings to the heart of the Christian tradition.
