Ethics of borrowing music (Church choirs)
Date: September 8, 2013
Our Church Choir has a limited budget and every penny is sacred! Is it considered ethical to ask to borrow music from time to time from other Church choirs in our Community? ( We are not asking to perform the borrowed music outside of a Church service)...of course this could be a reciprocal arrangement too. I feel that the 'Spirit' of a composer/publisher would prefer to have their music heard rather than be unplayed because of budget restraints in these circumstances. Can you give some guidance, or share your experiences?
