OneLicense, LLC and Church Support Group (CSG) are excited to announce a new partnership to bring more than 80,000 songs from leading Christian composers and publishers to churches who stream religious services via the CSG platform in Ireland and the UK.
CSG customers and other churches who opt in to a license will gain access to repertoire from top sacred music publishers, including The Taizé Community, The Iona Community, Oregon Catholic Press (OCP), GIA Publications, Inc. (GIA), the Royal School of Church Music, Oxford University Press, Hope Publishing, Kevin Mayhew, and many more.
Via https://onelicense.net, church musicians can download and report usage of thousands of hymns and songs in one convenient and easy-to-use location. ONE LICENSE offers Annual, Single-Use, Event, Practice-Track, and Podcast / Streaming Licences for music from leading worldwide sacred music publishers. ONE LICENSE currently serves 23,000 communities across the English-speaking world.
“We are thrilled to partner with CSG to make it easier for Christian communities to do more with the music they love, and at the same time ensure the composers and publishers of that repertoire are compensated and inspired to create even more wonderful music,” said Alec Harris, president of OneLicense, LLC. “I’ve been excited to get to know the CSG team and be inspired by their mission to connect churches with their members, no matter where they are located.”
Tony Bolger, Group CEO of CSG, said, “We are delighted with this new partnership with ONE LICENSE. As a mission-focussed-organisation, we like the idea of everyone being treated fairly, especially artists, in this challenging part of our history. ONE LICENSE presents to us as a professional and fair body with similar aims and ideals to us in their specialised field. Our live streaming services partners will be well served with this collaboration.”
The Church Support Group originated in 2002 with the launch of Catholic Ireland.net. The founder of the group was (now Bishop) Alan McGuckian, SJ, who was then the Director of Communications for the Jesuits in Ireland. Through many phases of development in the intervening years and the addition of other main activities – Church Services TV, Church Telecom, and Staffroom.ie – the group has grown under the leadership of Tony Bolger and a team of dedicated professionals to make a significant contribution to Christian Church support services now.
ONE LICENSE is an online licensing service committed to making it easy to obtain reprint permissions for congregational music and permissions for online services. From Annual, Event, and Single-Use Reprint Licenses to Practice-Track and Podcast / Streaming Licenses , we have a license that will meet your congregational music reprint needs. ONE LICENSE primarily serves Roman Catholic and traditional Protestant communities in English-speaking countries around the world.
