Taizé Service, August

Candles in the windows and on the altar provided a focus at a recent reflective evening service featuring Taizé music.

John Boulter conducted the choir. Jo Beattie accompanied on the organ, and a special touch was added with Gill Jones’ violin and Alan Trethowen’s guitar. Briony Bradford, Alwyn Cumming and Emil Nye were soloists.

Taizé is a small village in Burgundy, eastern France with an ecumenical Christian community. Thousands of visitors, especially young people, journey there each year. Taizé music is popular all round the world.
