Taize: Songs for Prayer, a new collection of music from Taize, represents the current repertoire used at daily prayer in the ecumenical community in France. It contains 82 musical selections - ostinatos and responses, canons, acclamations, litanies, psalms and a musical setting of the Eurcharist in Latin and English composed for the Community of Taize by Joseph Gelineau, SJ. Many of the Taize standards are included here in revised versions and English adaptations with many new chants appearing for the first time in the English-speaking world. This collection also includes extensive notes on how to perform the pieces. The topical and scriptural indexes will assist communities in the use of these songs throughout the church year.
