English Hymns for free use

The hymns and tunes on this page, new and old, are free to reprint and use.  Some are drawn from tunes and texts in the public domain, while others are more newly composed hymns published here under Creative Commons 3.0 licensing. 

So feel free to print, distribute, re-publish, record, or use these hymns in any way you choose.

But please remember this universal rule concerning hymns, which are used far too abundantly in common practice: in the Mass of the Roman Rite, it is better to sing the propers (including the chants for the Entrance, the Offertory, and the Communion) than to replace them with hymns.

If you are a composer or writer and wish to offer your work here, contact Noel Jones, and please report any errors to the same address.
