I work at a community primary school and have just been put in charge of music. I have to arrange songs for both ks1 and ks2 Xmas performances, no 'shows' as such, just singing. In the past the music lead has always bought cds from out of the ark music etc and allocated songs from these (these are songs specifically written by the company so parents don't know them). I'd like to mix it up and have songs parents actually know. Carols are a no no as were not religious so my next best thinking was popular Xmas songs. Can anyone help me with the mine field of licensing on these though?! I've found lots of you tube karaoke versions that we can sing to but unaware of licensing laws even though I've read and read to try and get my mind around it!
