Notes: This Taizé chant should be sung in all possible permutations. First, teach both the melody and the descant. Once the congregation knows these parts, they are free to sing either part, staggering their entrances to form a double-layered canon. While it is possible to bring singers in section by section, it resonates more deeply if these parts are distributed freely throughout the assembly. The chant should be sung joyfully and should not be halted too early. The song needs time to develop. To conclude the singing, a lead musician should indicate a ritard. All end together at the end of the two-measure phrase, regardless of where they are in the canon.
