Diocesan Resources

Lent and Easter 2021

Following the success of our offer of Advent and Christmas music to churches in the Diocese for use in their online worship, we have made similar resources available for Lent and Easter.

As before, this will include a wide range of hymns, choir pieces and organ voluntaries which parishes are most welcome to use as a resource for online services between now and Easter.

These are recordings that have either been made virtually since the original lockdown, recorded during services we have been able to hold since last Easter, or recordings which use historical recordings of the Cathedral Choir.

Recordings for Ash Wednesday are now available along with many others, and the remainder of the resources will be available from later this week.

Request the recordings

If you emailed last December to use the Advent / Christmas recordings, you will automatically be sent the link to this new project and do not need to email a further request. Anyone who has not requested recordings in the past is invited to email music@peterborough-cathedral.org.uk to register for the link to the OneDrive folder from which the recordings can be downloaded.

The list of music we have available can be seen below. The pre-typed texts will also be available for you in Word documents within the OneDrive folder (in a folder entitled ‘Texts’).

Please note that there will only be videos of the hymns this time as many will wish to put their own images to other pieces at this time of year.

Licensing and credits

Any parish using the recordings will need to make sure they have the necessary CCLI live streaming licence, and include these pieces in their usual report to CCLI.

We ask that parishes use this credit in Orders of Service / on-screen at the end of the service:  

Peterborough Cathedral Choir
Director of Music: Tansy Castledine

Organist: Chris Strange

This text will also be on a Word document in the folder where the recordings are.

We do hope that you will find this facility useful.
