Unconnected with the Taizé
community, our informal group sings every Sunday
in and around
For years we’ve sung every Sunday afternoon in
rotation in the medieval spaces of Rosslyn Chapel crypt,
People come and go, but our small group carries on, sharing an affection for these and other cool, damp ancient places which have wonderful acoustics and qualities of silence for the meditative chants we sing. People come to our group from different religious backgrounds and from none. We are not directed or trained, and only one or two read music. Instead we listen to each other and to the surrounding space. Our choice of chants, how they begin & end, & the silences that follow, all come from within.
The spaces that we
sing in are special. Rosslyn Chapel crypt's cool
dampness, scalloped vaulting and recesses produce a depth of sound and silence
to calm the frenetic activity of increasing numbers of visitors above. Crichton Chapel, in sight of Crichton castle and
carefully restored by its own small Trust, has a high
vault and a wonderful ambience, clearly made for voices. Seton Chapel, simple,
empty and airy, has an approach by woodland walk and walled garden that seems
to prepare the soul.
We continue to sing as usual on Sunday afternoons -any venue entrance charges apply
