Madison, Wis. – Musicnotes.com, an online provider of digital sheet music, announced on Tuesday it has signed a long-term licensing agreement with Word Music Group to provide Word Music’s collection of Christian music on its site. The terms of the deal were not available.
Word Music, a division of Warner Music Group based in Nashville, will supply Musicnotes with its catalogue of sheet music from Christian songwriters such as Amy Grant, Point Of Grace, Sixpence None The Richer and Jaci Velasquez.
