Free Essentials for All Sacred Musicians

You know how most Catholic parishes don’t have money for music?

There may be people in the parish who can read music, play the piano, like to sing but nothing ever happens to get them involved.

And it’s also not enough to just hire an organist, choir director or even a cantor.

You need to give them the tools they need, the shovel to dig a hole, a hammer to pound in a nail and a even a broom to clean up if they make a mess.

We give you free essential tools on this page, PDF files you download for free.

Today most every parish has a copy machine.

But, is it legal to copy these essential tools?

You have our blanket permission to copy, share, print in a bulletin, podcast and stream everything that we offer at no charge, no paperwork or permissions required.

2023 Advent and Christmas Sampler

Price: Pay What You Want

Do you find yourself wishing you had more variety of music instead of just relying on the same old music every year for Advent & Christmas?

While candles are being lit for the singing of Silent Night, now you have a lovely piece to play--Christmas Night. After your organ introduction, the choir may sing very softly the first verse with the people, growing in sound throughout but then softening the last verse and you may play the last line of the organ piece as a tag ending.

All of this music has been chosen with variety in mind, to give you a reason to get excited about playing and singing in the beginning of yet another Liturgical Year.
