Taizé worship & harmony chanting
around Cambridgeshire

Updated: February 2013

NEWS: Ralph & Vitalija plan to move to the Hebden Bridge area
in Calderdale / West Yorkshire in September 2012

Taizé harmony chanting has become popular in many places. It has spread far beyond the domain of Christian groups. Taizé songs are popular in workshops, around camp fires and during voice camps.
This page gives an overview about possibilities to join and experience the magic of Taizé harmonies in around Cambridge.

I envisage, that one day we will have Taizé Worship / singing every week of the month in Cambridge, and the enthusiastic Taizé fans from various congregations will visit each other and sing together. (Ralph, January 2011)

About harmony chanting

Taizé chants and rounds are simple and create this special magic which sometimes sends shivers down the spine. The harmonies can resonate with the soul and uplift the spirit. The texts are short and usually consist of very few Latin (a sacred language) words or a phrase in English.
