    At this time I’m only doing historical research for music I learned as a child from unknown sources. I have no plans to publish or make reference. Should that purpose or usage change then I will follow the guidelines and requirements of the law. As a retired pastor I appreciate the legal and moral ramifications as a former member of CCLI.

      Hi, John!

      Tim Berman here. I’m one of the editors for Songs of the Church, and I have just taken over the administrator role for this site. Sorry for the delay in response!

      I would be happy to help you track down shaped note settings of public domain songs. Depending on how many you need, I or one of the team might be able to provide them.

      Let me know what you’re looking for- songsofthechurch@gmail.com

      In His praise,
