Publisher in Need of Public Domain Christmas Songs

Public domain Christmas songs with male or female vocals are needed by a publisher for a wide variety of Film/TV, and commercial placements.

This publisher is currently looking for songs in various genres and tempos that could be found on a holiday playlist with these references:

“Jingle Bells” by Michael Bublé ft. The Puppini Sisters

"Joy To The World" by Pentatonix

“Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful) " by Céline Dion

Please submit well-crafted cover songs that would instantly put listeners in the Christmas/Holiday spirit. Your productions can range from simple arrangements, up to bigger, more fully developed arrangements—depending on the genre and style you’re submitting. Be sure to stick to the original melodies and lyrics, so they’re familiar to listeners.

Broadcast Quality is needed.

This company offers an exclusive, 50/50 deal, with a 3-year reversion. If they don’t get your songs used during that term, you can get your rights back. Since this company offers an exclusive deal, please be sure the material you submit for this pitch is not already signed to other libraries or catalogs.

Although there won't be any performance royalties paid for these placements, you will get 50% of the master license fee. Please double check to make sure the songs you submit are truly public domain. If you’re unsure whether your songs are in the public domain, please visit Public Domain Christmas Song List.

You must own or control your master to submit for this request. Please submit as many songs as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis—no full critiques. All submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PDT) on Thursday, Oct. 10.
