Free music for worship

Church music group videos

During the first lockdown, our existing Music Group at St Chad’s, which played at the informal 4.15pm Sunday afternoon service, discovered the BandLab app. After a steep learning curve we provided three hymns and songs each week for a Sunday ‘Zoom at Noon’ service. A video of the service was uploaded to St Chad's Facebook page and this website. Singers from St Clement’s, also on South Bank, York, later joined the Group.


Once completed, the recording were added to an iMovie video. The words of each verse are arranged so that congregations on Zoom may both see the verses and hear the singing, and so join in.

We now have 27 videos ‘in ‘the public domain’ which may be used by anyone without attracting copyright fees. 



How to get a video

Please email or phone Nick Nightingale (bass and ‘cello). His email and phone is below.

Let him know which hymns are wanted and the name of your Church / organisation.

 Nick will send you 

mp4 videos to your email by We Transfer / 07730 465655


Free gift

It will be a delight for the Group if you make use of these videos, whether at home, on a device, on screen in church or on Zoom - whatever!


If you really do like and use one or more, a small contribution to our appeal for step-free access into both Churches - St Clement's and St Chad's - would be excellent but by no means an expectation. If you'd like to donate:

Amazing Grace

A new commandment I give unto you

Breathe on me breath of God

Dear Lord and Father of Mankind 

Forty Days and Forty Nights 

Guide me thou redeemer

Holy, Holy, Holy

Jesus Christ is risen today

Jesus come for we invite you

Joy to the world 

Just as I am 


Laudate Dominum 

Let all mortal flesh

Lord enthroned in Splendour

Love Divine 

Peace, perfect peace

Praise my Soul the King of heaven

Take my life and let it be

Tell out My Soul 

The Angel Gabriel from Heaven came 

The Lord is my song

Thine be the glory

Thou whose Almighty Word 

We have a Gospel to proclaim 

We Three Kings 

When I survey the wondrous Cross
