Customer comment

I have to say that we get compliments every week on the music. Having John as our organist 😊 has completely changed the quality of the music and the service… when we sang Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, people were floored. We got compliments for weeks. Our deacon told me he had a hard time focusing on serving communion because he just wanted to listen to the music. We had no hope of finding good accompaniment for that piece until we got the library.

Multi-church licence

We recognise that increasingly there are multiple churches in a parish or benefice, and so a single purchase of our CDs and downloads is licensed for use in up to four churches, as long as they are in the same parish or benefice.
