Taize music is both simple and sophisticated. Brother Roger, founder of Taize, seeks to add a prayerful element to music, and a musical element to prayer, believing firmly in the old dictum, 'those who sing, pray twice'.
The songs in this collection include melody lines for singers and chords for guitar or keyboard accompaniment. There is a CD that is available separately that will enhance the experience for groups, as well as serve as a guide for those who want to practice or sing on their own.
While many Taize chant tunes are adaptable to be sung in multiple parts, this book only has the primary melody line, without harmonic parts included. What is included, however, is alternate translations for many of the tunes. Some are presented in French, some in Spanish, and some in Latin. The Latin is not due to Catholic influence as much as it a shared language among many people's linguistic heritage while no longer being anyone's first language.
This small book is a rich expression, wonderfully presented.
if this is reviewed, i would certainly like to return these books and would appreciate a message from amazon since i thought you stood behind the products sold.
i think it is misleading to have to buy music without an ability to look at one page of what is actually inside the book. it is a pain to have to try to return a product, as i have stated.
My chief complaint is that the lyrics of two of the fifteen songs are illegible, due to a printing error. This may not affect all printings (mine is 9th printing, 2012). The songs are #13, Sing Praises (Laudate omnes gentes), and #14, Stay with Us (Bleib mit diener Gnade).
