Nada Te Turbe
A meditation in the traditional style of Taizé, an ecumenical French order grounded in the Protestant tradition, which is based on a popular devotional poem by Saint Teresa de Jesus (1515-1583). Teresa, born in Avila, Spain, spent her life as a Carmelite sister. She was granted sainthood in 1622. That a leading light of the Counterreformation is embraced by a Protestant movement is a significant step on the path of religious understanding. For more information about Taizé, see De Noche. For information about the composer, Jacquers Berthier, see De Noche.
