. . . [this recording] is an uplifting collection of the most beautiful chants and songs of the community, performed by the brothers themselves along with a hand-picked choir of young visitors who sing and play instruments. It is certainly gently calming and relaxing, sometimes hypnotic, music -- beautifully recorded.

. . . an international phenomenon . . . music of peculiar potency and meaning . . . the power of these chants lies in their cumulative effect. Like the better sort of minimalist music -- which essentially is what they are -- they lean, hypnotically, toward transcendence . . . You hear it in the chants. And it delivers something that can more than hold its own among the mighty company of Karajan, Abbado and their like.

Taizé . . . [ist ein Synonym für] die spirituelle Kraft der Musik. Die schlichten, eindringlichen Gesänge haben auf ihre Weise Kirchenmusikgeschichte geschrieben . . .
