A. To date, most copyright holders have been reluctant to allow another publisher to grant blanket licenses for their copyrighted works, even when the copyright holder receives a fee. However, as the LCMS moves toward adoption of a new hymnal, CPH continues to seek innovative solutions that will meet the current and future needs of our congregations.
