Do you sing 'Like a Candle'? People occasionally ask about royalties. Apart from the fact that it's complicated with 3 authors (1 x lyrics, 2 x tune).
Here's the deal: "Like a Candle" (NCYC 2007) was written in memory of the remarkable, grace-filled Rachel Millen who was on the staff of NCYC and died in a road accident in late 2006. Among the many things that she did, she was a volunteer at Georgetown Youth Services in Tassie.
So if you want to express something for the gift of the song, which just popped out of the sky, send a cheque to the Georgetown Council and tell them that its a donation for their youth services in memory of Rachel Millen. 16-18 Anne Street, George Town, TAS 7253.Feel free to tell them why you're sending it.
I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get this message out there (yes, facebook might have some redeeming value). I would love Georgetown to get a shower of goodness for its young people from this. If you're ever after the music, it's here under downloads. Free to use.
Of course, I only wrote the words, but I'm saying all of this in confidence that the two tune authors are fine with it.
