Music Resources

Other Musicians

Possibly the least expensive and most useful resource available is a chat with another church musician! Social interaction with a colleague is invariably helpful, informative and stimulating. Church musicians should share their experiences more regularly.

International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP) is a virtual library of public domain music scores. Users can exchange musical ideas through the site, submit their own compositions, or listen to other people's composition; this makes IMSLP an ever-growing musical community of music lovers for music lovers.

ChoralWiki is the home of the Choral Public Domain Library (CPDL). You will find free choral/vocal scores, texts, translations, and other useful information.
