www.MusicForMass.org - Permission Request for Free Use in Worship

Why this permission agreement?

i.) These English texts of the Roman Catholic Mass are owned and administrated by ICEL (International Committee on English in the Liturgy) or by ICET (International Consultation on English Texts). The use of these owned Mass texts is currently granted to me free of charge, providing I do not charge for their use.  Should I charge a fee for use of ICET's or ICEL's texts, it will be necessary to renegotiate ICEL's agreement with me. 

ii.) All creative work of Daryel A. Nance published on this website, both music and texts as indicated, is the intellectual property of Daryel A. Nance, for which his claim of copyright is registered with the United States Copyright Office of the Library of Congress.  Wishing to maintain my claim of copyright, I, Daryel A. Nance, am obligated to administer my permission for the control of the copying, distribution, modification and the subsequent use of my creative intellectual property. This obligation to administer my creative works exists even though I have no personal interest at present in receiving monetary  compensation from the copying or use of my music or texts published on this website, when this music is both used for worship and is not reprinted in any manner that is offered for sale. This free use agreement for my creative intellectual property published on this website IN NO WAY RELEASES my creative intellectual property into public domain. Further questions or permission for any other uses must be requested and negotiated separately. E-mail:  MusicForMass@swbell.net  or office phone: 713-663-3539.
