Audio Files

You are here

Are the audio files, which are "freely" downloadable, are they free to use or do I need to purchase a one-time license for using the audio accompaniment for a quarantined church video that would be put on the church's Facebook page? Specifically, using the piano or organ MP3 for Heavenly Sunlight foundat, do I need to pay for a one time use?

Thank you.



You are free to use the MP3s for "Heavenly Sunlight" for you church video or any recordings that come from Small Church Music. No license is needed. The sources of the audio files may be found under "Media->Audio" on the hymn pages.

Y'all rock!
