Hymns: 14th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B

A selection of free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) hymns, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the fourteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B.

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. Many such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles / genres are included.

A small selection of hymns which are, or may be, still copyright are also included where they are a particularly good for for the theme(s).
