Most are free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free), so the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing - sometimes in a limited setting. Many of these hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.
A small selection of hymns that are still copyright may also be included, if these are particularly relevant to the day's readings.
Seasonal noteDepending on local customs and the timing of Easter, the 7th week of the season may not be in the liturgical calendar in some years
