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
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:
