ONE LICENSE announces launch of congregational reproduction licenses in Europe, beginning June 1, 2018


ONE LICENSE, LLC, is excited to announce that, effective 1 June 2018, European churches and schools will have the opportunity to become a part of the ONE LICENSE family, bringing new functionality and services to congregations in all European countries looking to reprint music for their worshipping communities.

ONE LICENSE offers Annual, Event, and Single-Use Reprint Licences to Podcast/Streaming Licences and Practice-Track Licences, and primarily serves Roman Catholic and liturgical Protestant communities around the world. Via, church musicians can download and report thousands of hymns and songs to reprint or project for the congregation in one convenient and easy-to-use location.

ONE LICENSE, jointly owned by GIA Publications, Inc. (GIA) and Oregon Catholic Press (OCP), brings together the leading publishers of sacred music throughout the world, including OCP, GIA, World Library Publications (WLP), Oxford University Press, Hope Publishing, Kevin Mayhew, the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM), Augsburg Fortress, the music of the Taizé Community and the Iona Community, and many more.

‘We are thrilled and honoured to welcome churches and schools in the UK and the rest of Europe to ONE LICENSE,’ said Alec Harris, president of OneLicense, LLC. ‘At ONE LICENSE, we look forward to serving communities with a simple, convenient, and affordable way to access the music they love. ONE LICENSE’s presence in Europe will allow us to provide even more services and features to congregations. Congregations will truly have “one licence” that will serve their needs for liturgies and other church celebrations.’

A valid licence ensures that composers and publishers receive compensation for their work and will have every incentive to create even more wonderful music for worship.

Customers can visit to learn more, and visit to see the category breakdowns and pricing for their organisation. The licences may be obtained entirely online and are available in either euros or pound sterling.
