About the Music
Music from Taizé originated in a small village not too distant from Lyon, France just before World War II. Brother Roger came to Taizé from the Reformed Church of Switzerland and founded an ecumenical community to help the needy. Due to their proximity to the Swiss border, the community hosted many Jews fleeing persecution in France. Worship at Taizé was based on the simple, often mystical tunes, set to scripture and composed by Jacques Berthier until his death in 1994. Focused on praying the music, the Taizé songs and reflective style of worship has found its way into churches worldwide across many denominations.
