Hymns Needed: Contribute by Providing Audio Recordings

Mauro Dalu on July 15th, 2012 | no comments yet

The list of hymns below was updated May 27, 2016.

We are asking our community to help us source hymns for use in Divine Office. We would like to use public domain music and we are asking to use recordings royalty free. But, recording artists don’t lose out because we typically generate strong purchasing interest from our community. We can distribute the music via all major music stores and services or link to the artists preferred store so that our community can purchase hymns for their own library.

Can you perform and record these hymns? Do you know of a high school, college, choir, or other organization that has hymns or would like to create hymns for us? It can be a great fund raiser!

Any liturgical hymns suitable for the Liturgy of the Hours is welcome, but here are a few favorites.

The hymns within the 1943 Dominican Breviary  and the Hymns of the Breviary and Missal 1922 are most welcome.

Here is a fabulous list of public domain hymns that includes lyrics and music. http://musicasacra.com/music/english-hymns-in-the-commons/

There is also a remarkable website called Breviary Hymns at http://kpshaw.blogspot.com/ that goes into detail about the hymns, uses, attribution, and copyrights.

Use http://www.hymnary.org/ to lookup or cross-reference tunes.

Here are also some suggested hymns. Again, please make sure there are no copyrights on the content you record. Let us know what the attribution should be and where people can download or purchase your recordings.
