Submitting Songs

About submitting songs to be included here
Songs for this library are selected once a year by Unity Worldwide Ministries' Music Ministry Team. The team meets in January of each year, and the due date for submissions is December 1. If you have compositions or arrangements for congregation, choir, small vocal ensemble or solo we can consider your work for inclusion in this library. The arrangement can be an existing New Thought song or an original song for any special service or for general use.

SUBMISSION CRITERIA

•We prefer "print-ready" arrangements in PDF format, professionally engraved. Submissions may be in lead sheet format, or they may be full piano/vocal arrangements.

•When possible, please include an MP3 audio of the song being performed. This does not have to be a professionally done studio recording but enough to give the buyer an idea of the complexity and feel. A good quality live church performance should be adequate in most cases. We will use this recording to create a sample of the song.

•If an commercial audio recording is available for purchase from another website, provide the information with your submission, and if the song is selected, a link will be included on the song's OML page.

•Please include a lyric sheet for each title and a suggested usage for each song (i. e., Christmas, Volunteer Sunday, Burning Bowl, General Use, etc).

•Songs will be screened for quality, singability and lyric content to insure compatibility with New Thought teachings.

•If a song is selected for the library, we will offer a songwriter agreement to the copyright holder. If a song has more than one copyright holder, any one of them can sign, because the agreement will be non-exclusive. The signatory to the agreement will be responsible for sharing distributions with the other parties involved.
