Weekly music selection
Since the start of the lockdown in March 2020 we have been providing weekly musical selections from St Martin-in-the-Fields for free use in Church of England church services, through the AChurchNearYou.com Resource Hub. We've had more than one million downloads of these tracks and we continue to change the tracks every week to suit the season.
A new permanent music collection
The weekly selections have been so popular that we have added a permanent music collection as well. This is growing all the time and now includes music for:
- Funerals and Memorial services
- Mass Settings
- the National Anthem
This is alongside the music published each week for your online and onsite services. Music for Advent and Christmas will be updated on the Resource Hub in November.
Access the music through the AChurchNearYou.com Resource Hub
All tracks are available in the Resource Hub, part of our website AChurchNearYou.com. ACNY editors can access the Resource Hub when logged in to their ACNY account. If you are not yet an editor for your church page on the site, you can sign up for free access here.
Through the Resource Hub, Church of England churches can also download music, graphics, campaign materials and stock photography - all for free.
To find the music, log in to AChurchNearYou.com and select Resource Hub from the menu. From here, select Digital Downloads, then Music Downloads.
The Church of England, working with St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Royal School of Church Music, is delighted to be providing this resource of rights-free music for use in Church of England church services. All tracks are clearly marked either as in the public domain, or with the type of licence you will need to use that track. Churches who wish to use all the music will need both a licence from CCLI License and from One License (with relevant add-ons for online streaming). More information is provided within the Resource Hub.
