Music for the Taizé Worship

“The exchange with God becomes real for us in prayer: by his Holy Spirit, God comes to dwell within us. By his word and by the sacraments, Christ gives himself to us. In return, we can surrender everything to him.”

Brother Alois, Letter from Cochabamba

The Taizé community is based near Cluny in France. It focuses on meditative worship using prayer and music. St Michael's offers worship based on Taizé style liturgy and music on the fourth Sunday of each month at 6.30pm. We offer a space for musicians to practice beforehand at 5.30pm.
