This lovely little book and CD set is intended to familiarize you with the spirit, song, and life of the Taizé Community. Sixty color photos depict the beautiful Taizé countryside and the captivating, universal allure of this thought-provoking and powerful way of life and prayer. Prayers and meditations by Brother Roger, founder of Taizé, are incorporated into the book as well.
The CD holds nearly 71 minutes of music from many recordings. “Nothing is more conducive to a communion with the living God than a meditative common prayer with, as its high point, singing that never ends and that continues in the silence of one’s heart when one is alone again.” – Brother Roger of Taizé
