Program Description

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.
 

The program will be recorded for those who register. A notification will be sent when it is available for viewing.
