All these hymns are believe to be free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free). This means that the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing.
A small selection of copyright hymns many be included, if they are particularly relevant, or to highlight the author or composer if this information is often omitted.
There are considerable challenges in identifying the original author of some Maori language hymns, which started to be used as prayers by a community at unknown times.
