Haas was inspired to write this ostinato refrain by Brother Roger and the Taizé Community in France. As with any mantra-like format, there is no single “right” way to present this song-prayer. The recording provides several ideas that you might wish to incorporate in your community. A number of cantorial verses are provided and may be sung over the refrain, if desired.

For cantor or soloist, 2 or 3 octaves Handbells or Handchimes
