scottparat answers:

Most modern music is copyrighted, but older stuff is usually in the public domain. You should be able to get a lot of traditional Christmas songs as sheet music.

These websites have free sheet music:

George asks…

Anyone know well known christmas carols that aren’t copyrighted? And how do you tell they’re not copyrighted?

scottparat answers:

Most of the Christmas carols you know and love are public domain. Anything that says “traditional” or found in hymnals is usually okay. Check the date is was published. (Or better yet, find out if the author is living or dead. If dead, then 70 later the work will be public domain (unless renewed)).

“How can I tell if a work is still protected by copyright?

Works created after January 1, 1978 will be protected for the life of the composer (author) plus 70 years. Copyrights in effect on that date, if renewed, will continue for 75 years from the date copyright was originally secured. Those works in their initial 28-year period of copyright on January 1, 1978 can be renewed for an additional 47 years, while the copyright of works in their renewal term on that date were automatically extended for an additional 19 years.”

I do assume that you mean christmas carols like “Deck the Hall”, and not christmas songs like “Rudolph.”

Here’s a safe list:

Angels from the Realms of Glory
Angels We Have Heard on High
Away in a Manger
Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella
Coventry Carol
Deck the Hall
Ding Dong Merrily on High
First Noel, The
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
Good King Wenceslas
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Here We Come A-Wassailing
Holly and the Ivy, The
I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In
In the Bleak Midwinter
Infant Holy, Infant Lowly
It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
Joy to the World
Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming
O Come All Ye Faithful
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
O Little Town of Bethlehem
Silent Night
Sussex Carol
Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day
We Three
We Wish You a Merry Christmas
What Child Is This?
