Hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) in Year C of the Roman Catholic lectionary.

Most are free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) meaning 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.
