What is meant by "approved sites" on the About Faithlife Music page? There are some major religious music sites that are not listed e.g.

These sites come to mind without even touching on my own tradition.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Thanks for the list! Please post other suggestions.

We're working to improve the site, and want to offer as many useful cross-references as we can.

Here are a few more that come to mind - in the next few days I'll make a more methodical list:

Note that the liturgical music sites include music for Biblical texts especially the psalms and antiphons. This list reflects a number of historical traditions - Shaker, West Gallery, Shaped note ...

A suggested additional feature is to relate hymns to lectionary.

An example from The Text This Week which gives links to sites that provide hymn-lectionary links that illustrate the feature.

  • Hymns and Music:
    • Original Hymns, Settings, and Songs:
      • "Jesus Asked One Day," Carolyn Winfrey Gillette's new hymn (2014) on Peter's declaration about Jesus, Jesus foretelling his death and resurrection, the cross and self-denial. Tune: SHOWALTER 10.9.10.9 with Refrain ("Leaning On The Everlasting Arms").
      • Long Ago, When Pharaoh's Daughter” an original hymn by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette, 2009, celebrates adoption, including Pharaoh’s daughter and Moses.  Tune:  NETTLETON 8.7.8.7 D (“Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing”).
      • "O Jesus, You Were Born to Be" an original hymn by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette, 2008, celebrates the names and titles of Jesus. Tune: TRURO 8.8.8.8 ("Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates")
and O WALY WALY ("Though I May Speak").
      • "There Are Many Ways of Sharing" an original hymn by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette, 2004, 
celebrates the gifts of the Spirit for the Church. NETTLETON 8.7.8.7 D ("Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing").
      • "One Word Created," Brenton Prigge, NewHymn.
      • Hymns of the Spirit Three, Proper 16A, Richard E. Hurst, Universalist National Memorial Church.
    • Psalm Settings:
    • Hymn/Song/Choral Piece Lists:

Note the same site also has an index to hymns based on scripture. For example for Psalm 22:

Note also that this site is a very good source of the major hymn/gospel/praise music sites.

PL:

What is Faithlife Music and how do we access it?

I suppose many have the same question.  Looks like it is beta, so may not be available to anyone who is not in the beta program.

It's available at 

https://music.faithlife.com/

It will be available via a section in the Passage Guide and Sermon Starter Guide, among others. It's also available from Proclaim as a link on every song slide in the editor.

It's a cross-reference site for church music metadata; for each hymn/song it has metadata (Scripture, preaching themes, etc.) and then links to videos, audio files, and third-party sites with lyrics, arrangements, sheet music, chord charts, etc.

Example: https://music.faithlife.com/songs/this-is-amazing-grace

It does not attempt to catalog each unique instance of a song; it intentionally consolidates the data. So Faithlife Music has only one entry for And Can it Be:

https://music.faithlife.com/songs/and-can-it-be

but points you to Hymnary.org (among others), where you can learn that there are more than a dozen variant texts:

http://hymnary.org/text/and_can_it_be_that_i_should_gain/fulltexts

and nine tunes:

http://hymnary.org/tunes?qu=textAuthNumber%3Aand_can_it_be_that_i_should_gain%20in%3Atunes&sort=matchingInstances

There are also some charts based on song use in Proclaim, and more metadata, song discovery, and set-building tools will appear in the future.

I just discovered it. I remembered having access to the Steve Green Hymnal and was looking for a hymn to go with my sermon on John 15:12-17 and there was the FL Music link in the section. Found a number of songs which we will use for the service. Thanks.
