Re: Easter Vigil - when did you start and finish?

Have heard about a number of Vigils that started in substantial daylight at 8:00pm, and one or two even earlier! The Vigil I played for was scheduled to start at 9:00pm, in practice was a few minutes later than that. Ended at 11:45pm, followed by a party for the newly-initiated which I did not stay ...

Re: Involving visitors - music of First Holy Communion

Thanks to organist, VML and alan29, Lots of good pointers there, thank you. I think we could do more of a run through of key responses beforehand; we don't have a tradition of animators so that would be a good innovation especially for this Mass. The PP does emphasise that it is a solemn occasion a...

Re: One License takes over from Calamus

And the fact that OneLicense offers a web-streaming option, which I think Decani/Calamus didn't have, means that it's at least possible for all those web-cams in churches to be copyright-legal. That's a step forward. There's a whole issue/debate/lawsuit there that is well overdue. The Irish company...

Re: One License takes over from Calamus

We occasionally have diocesan services, which are covered by the diocese's license. How does that work? Calamus has always been site-specific. Not so, Nick. Calamus licenced the pastoral team in some dioceses to enable the reproduction of material at diocesan events around the diocese (other than a...

Re: One License takes over from Calamus

It's vital that people do their returns, so that what money there is actually gets to the right people. The publishers take 50% of what they receive, before handing what little is left over to authors and composers. Another problem with OneLicense is that it has no idea about pieces that are publish...

Re: Copyright

Different hymn books, different stories: Praise the Lord (1967): no copyright acknowledged in either text or music Parish Hymn Book (1968): copyright in the music (Burns & Oates), but not in the text Praise the Lord revised (1972): no copyright acknowledged in either text or music Celebration Hymnal...

Re: Copyright

In the case of Rigby, the publication date of 1933 would come into play and the music would be deemed to have been in the public domain since 2003 (under current legislation). Not 70 years after his death? See attached pdf from British Library website. Not if there is no longer anyone around to ben...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

Yes, that makes sense. Now, the difference between copyright and royalties? One liturgical composer I knew, ensured that his royalties – on both sides of the Atlantic – would go to his brother.

Re: Copyright

On the "Liverpool Synod Hymn" thread https://www.ssg.org.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=2050&p=27482#p27475 ... ... This tune is normally named KING DIVINE. I don't know of any hymn book that gives the composition date, but if 1933 is correct (Rigby didn't die until 1952) then hymnary.org is wrong in st...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

But am I right in thinking one can bequeath copyright to another? No, I don't think so. If that were the case, lots of composers' later descendants would still be living off royalties. As it is, when the composer has been dead 70 years the work becomes public domain. The whole area is of course a m...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

Ghastly! And probably holding the world record for the number of parallel fifths between melody and bass! Must have been a pupil of RVW. There's a world of difference between RVW knowing what he was doing and "breaking the rules" deliberately to achieve a certain effect, and composers who unwitting...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

And click here for a true Liverpool anthem, where the tune (at least), Merseyside, was commissioned for the laying of the foundation stone of the Metropolitan Cathedral. You’ll have to spool forward to 1’53”. This tune is normally named KING DIVINE. I don't know of any hymn book that gives the comp...

So it's £6,200 for 280 hours (cathedral) per annum plus 30 hours (diocesan events).
So that's about 57% of the going rate in this part of the world.
