    In my school we are looking to buy a CD library of the above to be used for RE lessons and collective worship. Has anyone used something like this before? I have some money to spend on it but can't find a collection of music online, just individual CDs. Thanks

    When I put together a collection of 'world music' as a listening resource for assemblies and my own music lessons I bought individual CDs for each part of the world or country. I made a collection of about 35 CDs. I spent time in small music shops hunting out titles in the world music section. My focus was the music of the country rather than a religious element though.
    Some, but by no means all, came from the Rough Guide series:

    You might want to look at this website Putumayo kids. The CDs are available on Amazon but the site is worth visiting for the additional resources it offers.

    This document I found might also be of interest to you. It is about the importance of music in different religions.
