Wild Goose Resource Group (Iona)

WGRG have received many enquiries about using their materials (which invlude the music of John Bell) free at this time.

For reproducing words, churches with a CCL or OneLicense licence will be covered in the usual way, and should report use of songs in their license returns (e.g. if a song is reprinted in a service sheet made available on a church website). For churches without a licence WGRG usually request a donation, but they are waiving this for the current crisis.

They have recently revised their INFORMATION SHEET explaining the position regarding music streaming.
