Using commercial music

In the book and on the website there are several suggestions for suitable background and introductory music. The use of pre-recorded music, other than as part of worship services, needs an appropriate license. Some artists and publishers allow their music to be used for public performances, especially for non- commercial use. Others require, in the UK, a Performing Rights Society licence or a specific licence from the rights holder, even for non-commercial use. CCLI, the provider of the church copyright scheme, act as agents for a PRS license for churches.

Where are you going, shepherds?
Where are you going, shepherds?
Where are you going, shepherds?
Going to see the King!

They say there's a King in a cowshed
Come to birth on a straw bed.
No royal cushions for his head.
Come to set us free!

Where are you going, wise men? ...

Where are you going, angels? ...

Where are you going, children? ...
