Taizé-Inspired Sacred Chant
(EDT, UTC-04) (EDT, UTC-04)
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.
