Prayer at Taize is almost entirely sung. Over the course of the year,
numerous different musical forms are used, including hymns, psalms,
long or short responses and litanies sung a capella or accompanied by
the organ, and certain songs from the Orthodox tradition. Most
characteristic is the use of the 'songs of Taize', such as those
presented in this new volume.

The songs of Taize were first developed
in the 1970s, as the number of young people from different countries
grew and the need to find a way for all of them to participate in
prayer together became more pressing. They were first presented to the
English-speaking world in the 1980s in Music from Taize 1 & 2.
These two volumes were followed in 1991 by Songs and Prayers of Taize
(published by Mowbray/Continuum), the first book to give English
translations for many of the songs, and in 1998 by Songs for Prayer.
Christe Lux Mundi contains the principle songs written since then,
nearly all composed by brothers of the Community. The contents do not
overlap with the titles mentioned above.

Christe Lux Mundi is available
in two editions: the vocal edition contains, as well as the
congregational parts, all the solo verses in English. The
congregational parts on their own are also available in the assembly
edition. Taize songs have two essential elements, whatever the context
in which they are used. First, the songs are meditative and are
intended to help open a contemplative dimension of prayer. Secondly,
they are intended to allow the participation of everyone.
