CCLI selects Noteflight technology for re-launch of SongSelect

Leader in Christian worship music chooses Noteflight’s web-based notation viewer to revamp offering and enhance user experience

April 23, 2012 Cambridge, MA –
Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) announced the re-launch of its SongSelect service showcasing the unique capabilities of Noteflight’s MusicXML sheet music viewer technology. As part of this major re-launch, CCLI has deployed a custom version of Noteflight’s MusicXML sheet music viewer, that supports SongSelect’s various score formats and features while adding new functionality that leverages Noteflight’s specific technological advantages.

Noteflight’s viewer is ideal for use within the SongSelect service due to Noteflight’s full-featured score layout and playback capabilities. This flexibility allows CCLI customers to exercise more control over layout, transposition, note size, inclusion of parts and many other options.

CCLI serves a large, diverse population of churches by providing SongSelect, a subscription-based licensing service that includes access to musical scores in a variety of formats including lead, chord and vocal sheets. As the most comprehensive legal source for worship music, the selection of the viewer technology was a critical consideration for CCLI.

“Over 60,000 churches across North America already have a SongSelect subscription. But we’re always looking to better serve our customers and provide them with the best possible experience. With web technology pushing forward so quickly, we want SongSelect to remain relevant as a worship team resource and Noteflight is an integral part of this vision.” remarked George Ross, CTO of CCLI.

“CCLI is unique in its global reach and in its use of a subscription model, which allows its customers great flexibility in tailoring their sheet music to their needs,” said Joe Berkovitz, President of Noteflight. “We’re extremely pleased to be able to serve an organization of this scale with our platform.”
Noteflight offers cloud-based music notation software to individuals, K-12 music teachers, university level music educators and has licensed its viewer technology to leading global music companies, including sheet music publishers and digital content distributors.
