Taizé has spawned a unique style of worship that has become popular in churches, retreat centres and seminaries throughout the world.
The singing of distinctive and much-repeated prayer chants during candlelit prayer services is one of its trademarks. Taizé music highlights simple phrases, usually lines from the Psalms or other pieces of scripture, repeated or sung in canon. The repetition is designed to help meditation and prayer.
This evening, I will be at the Taizé service at the beautiful Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. A nice break between a hectic week, and what promises to be a hectic weekend.
