About Top Catholic Songs

Share, learn and promote Catholic music

Sign up free as a registered user to post your original songs of faith (covers are discouraged unless you have permission from the copyright holder). Here you can discover and appreciate Catholic-Christian songs both old and new. As a free member you can post articles and make comments. Top Catholic Songs (TCS) helps Catholic-Christian songwriters, songleaders, catechists and group leaders with song selection, songwriting, do-it-yourself song notation, and promotion. Song artists share talents, tips, influences, favorite songs or stories related to their journey in music. Some of the songs  in our various user-generated articles are dynamically connected to iTunes where a seeker of quality Catholic music can listen to and purchase music tracks. Other songs are directly downloadable as MP3 files.

Due to copyright laws, TCS does not allow posting of lyrics to copyrighted songs that are not in the public domain. The exception is any song for which the composer or copyright holder has given a TCS member direct and explicit permission to share.
