Terms and copyright information

In response to the desire of Christian Science branch churches to be able to offer services (including Wednesday testimony meetings and Sunday School) online or via conference call due to mandatory or suggested closing of public gatherings during the current pandemic, The Christian Science Publishing Society (“CSPS”) is offering a selection of sound recordings of hymns from the 1932 and 2017 Hymnals, as well as selected solos and other instrumental music, for streaming or download in accordance with these Terms.

Also being offered for download are PDFs of sheet music of the same selection of Hymns.

Due to third-party copyright issues, we are not able to offer every hymn from the Hymnals here. The words and music of the hymns and other music on this page, including the corresponding sound recordings, are either owned by The Mother Church (“TMC”) or may no longer be under copyright. Other hymns in the Hymnals have copyright issues which prevent us from sharing them here at this time. More information on such topics will be forthcoming in the detailed guidelines mentioned below. Be sure to check these Terms frequently, as they may be updated as new questions arise.

We have posted these resources to be more readily available, and uplift anyone who can benefit from them during the current pandemic. When it subsides, we will determine ongoing availability at that time. Branch churches are encouraged to share the link to this page with their members and guests.

In order to preserve bandwidth for other visitors, please do not download everything here all at once. Instead, try to download only those recordings and sheet music needed for services upcoming within the next few weeks.

DETAILED GUIDELINES COMING SOON

The Mother Church will soon be posting detailed guidelines for sharing services using technology, including detailed information about topics such as music and recording copyrights, Bibles, Bible Lessons, and much more. Not all questions are answered in these Terms, so please review the guidelines when they are available, and periodically as they may be revised from time to time. A link to the guidelines will be posted on this page.

Sound recordings

These recordings are being offered primarily to branch churches for the purpose of having music to play during “Electronic Services,” meaning services conducted “live” via conference call or live-streamed via private online platforms such as Skype or Zoom. For copyright reasons “Electronic Services” do not include any services which are recorded in any form or made available on the open internet or on social media, including Facebook Live, YouTube Live, or similar platforms.

While these recordings are intended primarily for branch church use in holding Electronic Services, others may download them from this page for personal use during the current pandemic.

For copyright reasons, these sound recordings are not authorized to be: (i) re-recorded in any derivative work, (ii) included in any public performances, such as on the open internet or social media, or (iii) posted online, including in recorded services. As noted above, they may be performed in the course of Electronic Services.

By downloading any of these sound recordings, you agree that you will use them only for the purposes stated in these Terms, and to delete these files if requested by CSPS.

Note 1: Branch churches in the U.S. who have purchased CDs or USB drives of the Hymnal or certain other recordings owned and published by CSPS (specifically Christian Science Hymnal Accompaniment: Hymns 1–429, Christian Science Hymnal: Hymns 430–603; Recordings [CD or USB], Embraced, Celebration, Glorious, and Majestic) may perform any of the tracks on these recordings in their Electronic Services. We are not able to provide here every hymn in those recordings due to third-party musical composition copyrights.

Note 2: Using recordings of words and music copyrighted by others in private online religious services falls under a grey area of law in the U.S. and possibly elsewhere. Here’s why we think it’s low risk for branches to perform all the tracks if they have purchased the recordings listed in the prior paragraph: We own these recordings and we understand, but cannot guarantee, that the major U.S. and UK music performing rights societies may be willing to consider performances of words and music of musical compositions in such performing rights society’s repertoires as not requiring licenses due to their religious nature, if used in services held by private conferencing. This would not apply to any words or music not in such repertoires, so there may be greater risk involved with using the words, music or recordings of tracks not provided for download on this page.

For branch churches who do not have the recordings from CSPS mentioned in the preceding paragraphs, we are temporarily providing this selection of hymns and other music to play in their Electronic Services.

See this Google doc with additional copyright information for branches holding online services.

Sheet music PDFs

Individuals may download and print the PDFs on this page for their personal use, or may email the PDFs individually to assist others in their personal use (not mass email). Individuals may not post the PDFs online or on social media.

Branch churches may post the PDFs on their websites or email them to members or visitors in advance of an upcoming Electronic Service. Please do not maintain an archive of sheet music on branch websites, or share these PDFs on social media. Please take down PDFs within one week after a service.

Note that branches may also post just the words to these same hymns on their websites or display them during Electronic Services, but the display of words must always include credit to the author and any copyright notice for the words as can be found in the corresponding PDF. Please see the credit information at the bottom of this page. (If posting only words, no credit to the music composer is required.)

UPDATE as of July 9, 2020:  Now that some branches have resumed in-person services, the PDFs on this page may also be printed for handouts at the branch for use during the service, provided that:

  1. Legal requirements and/or current guidelines from local public health officials prohibit or discourage the use of hymnal books for in-person church services, and

  2. Printed handouts are collected and destroyed after each service.

By downloading any of these PDFs, you agree that you will use them only for the purposes stated in these Terms, and to delete these files if requested by CSPS.

Copyright and credit information

The information in this document is based on U.S. law. Branches outside the U.S. may wish to consult an attorney regarding copyright laws in their country.

Except as specifically indicated, all of the sound recordings offered on this page are copyright Ⓟ CSPS or the Christian Science Board of Directors (“CSBD”).

The sheet music for Hymns 1-429 is from: Christian Science Hymnal © 1932, renewed 1960 The Christian Science Board of Directors.

The sheet music for Hymns 430-603 is from: Christian Science Hymnal: Hymns 430–603 © 2017 The Christian Science Board of Directors.

Christian Science Hymnal, No. [#], Words: [Author Name] Music: [Composer Name]. Used by permission.

If your meeting technology allows, please post a visual credit for any other music you perform, in the following format. Please fill in the bracketed information:

Please note that it is not required to announce copyright credits for music from the Platform.
