During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Taizé: Songs for Prayer Assembly Edition

You are here

Haruo's picture

This is closely related but not identical to TSP1998. Here's what the cover looks like:

As you can see, it's very similar in appearance to the 1991 Songs & Prayers from Taizé:

Both the orientation and the contents, however, differ from the 1998 book already in the database. I'm wondering, when entering it in the database, what ID should be used for the Assembly Edition; tentatively I am using TSfP1998. Also, I'm wondering how to remove an item from My Hymnals, since I now realize the "Taizé: Songs for Prayer" I have there now is the wrong one.


Each entry should have a checkbox on the right and a "Remove" button on the header.

We do not need to have "Taizé: Songs for Prayer" (Assembly edition) entered. The difference between the Assembly edition and the Vocal edition (which we already have) is that the Assembly edition contains the congregation parts with no cantor parts or piano accompaniment. We prefer the Vocal edition, which has both the assmbly parts and the cantor parts.

At least a few of the songs differ in first line, or is that because cantor parts are being treated as first lines?

Right, the first line is the first line of the verse when there is a response/refrain/antiphon.
