Copyright and licensing of liturgical music

The Diocese of Jefferson City has entered into a group agreement with OneLicense, which allows parishes to reprint or project music for the congregation, to podcast or stream services containing this music, or to copy practice-tracks for rehearsal purposes. One License distributes royalties equitably to composers, authors, and publishers.

A workshop hosted by the diocesan chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians provides information on how parishes can participate in the licensing agreement. For more information, contact the diocesan chapter of NPM at
