Performance Licensing

Religious Services


Under copyright law, live performance of religious music (by people) in a worship service is exempt from any special licensing requirement for it's performance within a worship service. This does not extend to electronic broadcast or recording of a worship service (see below).

Radio/TV Broadcast, Commercial Public Performance


Feargal King will shortly be a registered member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Musicians). Radio and TV stations should include any of our music on their returns to ASCAP, or the Performing Rights Society (PRS) in your country. If you are hosting a broadcast Mass, Service or Concert, be sure to inform the producers that any of our songs must be reported in order to meet legal copyright requirements. Non-worship performance for profit is also covered by copyright law. Please contact PRS/ASCAP in advance for further info. If in doubt, CONTACT us!

Digital Distribution


It is illegal to make copyrighted music available on the internet for any reason or by any method without permission. This includes any version or performance - even if you made it yourself. It also includes downloadable MP3s, streaming, P2P networking (peer-to-peer), website audio, podcasts, etc. We are currently on a learning curve regarding Digital Distribution licensing, so more information will be available in the future. In the meantime, if you have a question or want to use one of our songs on your website, CONTACT us.

Note: OneLicense.net recently added a digital distribution license for the use of liturgical music in podcasts of Masses and other liturgical events.
