Is it appropriate to forward your quarterly suggestions? My music committee has to select solos. We take turns by the month. I don't mind paying but I know it's not easy for some others on the committee. Bonnie
Bonnie -- if you buy a Solo Thoughts for your church, you are certainly welcome to print it and share it with your music committee and musicians. You are also free to email the pdf file to them for research use.
You are not allowed to share it with other churches and other individuals outside of your church.
Unlike sheet music, we do allow the sharing of this resource within your church music family. When you purchase our sheet music, you are licensed to make 2 copies only—one for the singer and one for the accompanist.
Thank you so much for asking this question!
p.s. Here is the link to the Solo Thoughts page:
And the link to our new Solo Thoughts Community on Facebook, where you can share ideas and pick up information about church music, copyrights, etc.:
Where, or can I, find a link to what a CS hymn sounds like, with vocal or just orchestra on Watchfire? I'm thinking of using #461 for Sunday School but have no idea what it sounds like. Thanks for your help! Corinne
Hi Corinne, if you have access to Concord, you can find this hymn in the hymnal on the program. It has words and playback on piano. This particular hymn is in the Hymnal Supplement.
Why don't you send what you have to our Submissions Director, Amy Duncan, at email@example.com? She'd be happy to help you with this.
We have a wonderful resource here at WFM, Solo Thoughts, that can provide you with ideas for solos that will appropriate for the week's Bible Lesson. Just follow this link: http://watchfiremusic.com/solo_thoughts....
