Frequently Asked Questions
Does my church’s CCLI license allow me to make copies of ZOE CD’s?
No. Although the CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) license allows licensed churches the right to print songs, hymns and lyrics in church bulletins, on a projected screen, or in a customized songbook or hymnal, the license does not cover the copying of ZOE’s recordings. In general, when available, it is preferred that you purchase CD’s from the ZOE Store, or download the music from an authorized digital music retailer (such as iTunes or Amazon.com). ZOE uses these funds it collects to create more worship recordings and resources, and to compensate songwriters, publishers and arrangers of these songs, as required by U.S. copyright law.
Can I make copies of a ZOE sheet music folio or individual song sheet to use as inserts for our church hymnals or customized songbooks?
The CCLI license allows licensed churches to duplicate individual song sheets from ZOE sheet music folios as long as: (1) It is intended for congregational singing only, as opposed to a group or praise team “performance” in front of the congregation; and (2) The song is covered by CCLI (this can be checked by searching the “Song Search” feature on the CCLI web site).
Can I buy one copy of a CD or folio and make copies for my friends, family or fellow church members?
No. It is a violation of copyright law to make copies of recorded music or printed sheet music without the permission of the copyright owners. Please purchase additional CD’s or folios from the ZOE Store, or download the music from an authorized digital music retailer (such as iTunes or Amazon.com) because this is how ZOE raises the necessary funds to create these resources in the first place, and to compensate songwriters, publishers and arrangers of these songs as required by U.S. copyright law.
Will ZOE be reprinting its CD’s or sheet music folios that are out of stock?
ZOE may reorder in the future some physical CD’s and sheet music folios that currently are out of stock, but some likely will be obsoleted. However, the entire catalog of ZOE music recordings is available for digital download at the iTunes music store, at the AmazonMP3 Store, and on many other digital music online stores.
Are mp3 versions of ZOE songs available to download on iTunes or anywhere else?
Are PDF files of ZOE sheet music arrangements available to download?
Sheet music for many of ZOE’s songs are available in PDF form for digital download at Fearless4you.com.
When will there be a new ZOE CD?
ZOE recently released its latest worship project Faithful, which is available for purchase through our online ZOE Store. Keep checking back here at the ZOE web site for the latest news and information on future ZOE recordings and worship resources.
Is there discount or wholesale pricing available for bulk orders or resellers?
Current prices posted in the online ZOE Store for all ZOE offerings are already heavily discounted. There are no further discounts being offered at this time.
Do ZOE sheet music folios contain piano accompaniment, guitar tablature, or any voicings other than SATB?
ZOE sheet music arrangements are only in SATB and do not contain piano accompaniment or guitar tablature. Only the folio for Inside Out contains chords, but older folios do not.
Does ZOE offer software or music on slides for projection during a worship service?
ZOE does not offer this service at this time.
