At a Zoom meeting held on Monday, May 11, between the Presiding Bishop’s Office, bishops, and canons to the ordinary, the issue of copyright infringement by churches broadcasting music was raised.
In response, two documents were shared and are reproduced below. Please note that the documents were written prior to April 15, and any reference in them to limited free rights to broadcast music during Easter are now void.
In short, you must have a license if you broadcast hymns (or any other music). Also see this recent article on copyright: Music licensing: what you need to know.
