Take A Song With You
St. Augustine is sometimes credited for writing, “He who prays, sings twice.” The historians can debate about the original source for this quote, but the truth behind it is not debatable. Singing makes impressions on our memories that are stronger and longer-lasting than hearing or reading. Pray with us today, the first time, as you hear the tunes and texts of Music from Taizé. Everyone is welcome to sing along as you are moved, in the tradition that has spread across the world from the Christian community from Taizé, France. Then take a tune with you in your memory, and pray a second time later this week when you recall hearing this music.
Welcome, Janneke Hoogland, cello, and Elena Oh, violin. Elena is a senior at Santa Catalina School. She has been studying violin since 2012. She initially studied with Rochelle Walton and now studies with Cindy Tien-Hsin Wu. She enjoys hiking and baking and hopes to study Economics or Public Policy in college.
