Christe Lux Mundi Music from Taize


Christe Lux Mundi Music from Taize by Taize Community

This is a new collection of Taize songs, nearly all composed by brothers of the Community, to aid and enhance the contemplative dimension of prayer. As well as the congregational parts, this edition also contains all the solo verses in English. Prayer at Taize is almost entirely sung. Over the course of the year, numerous different musical forms are used, including hymns, psalms, long or short responses and litanies sung a capella or accompanied by the organ, and certain songs from the Orthodox tradition. Most characteristic is the use of the 'songs of Taize', such as those presented in this new volume. Christe Lux Mundi is available in two editions: the vocal edition contains, as well as the congregational parts, all the solo verses in English. The congregational parts on their own are also available in the assembly edition. Taize songs have two essential elements, whatever the context in which they are used. First, the songs are meditative and are intended to help open a contemplative dimension of prayer. Secondly, they are intended to allow the participation of everyone.
