LATEST VIDEO:

With churches facing the prospect of a Christmas like no other, many will be looking to produce online Christmas services this year. To help with this, St Edmundsbury Cathedral is working with Cantus Firmus Trust, Buriensi Consort and local churches to create music and worship video resources for churches to use throughout the Advent, Christmas and Epiphany season, using music performed by Suffolk musicians and singers.

 

Videos are being released as they become available on the InHarmony YouTube channel.

 

To request a copy of the actual video file, for embedding in your own service compilation, email music.development@stedscathedral.org, stating the name of your church and the items you would like from the list below.

 

In addition to these free resources, Buriensi Consort are offering bespoke video recording and editing services at reasonable rates. Full details at buriensiconsort.co.uk

 

IMPORTANT – make sure you have a licence

Churches embedding these videos in their own livestreams are responsible for ensuring that they have the appropriate licenses in place – usually onelicense.net and/or uk.ccli.com. Helpful advice on what is required can be found in this article. Copyright information is included in the YouTube description of each video.
