Every year tens of thousands of pilgrims from many countries come to the village of Taizé in France. They come to take part in the distinctive prayer life of the Taizé Commnity, founded in 1940 by Brother Roger whose vision was to establish a spiritual center of reconciliation between the Christian churches.

Recorded at the Church of St. Vedast in London, England, the 14 chants on Christ the Savior were sung by Christians of various denominations. Songs include “O Light of Every Heart,” “Une Soif Emplit Notre Âme” and more.

In keeping with the true spirit of Taizé, all of these chants have been recorded in a context of prayer and worship. An important and unique spiritual landmark, this exquisite Taizé music would serve well for meditation, personal prayer and communal prayer services.
