Free Background Music: Featured Guest Series

This is the start of a new series in the free background music collection. It features music by other composers that is available for non-commercial use as long as the song is properly credited. If all goes well, I’ll be adding more videos in the coming months. There is a download link before each video. Before using the composer’s music, please check the terms of use at the bottom of this page. If you like their songs, remember to visit and subscribe to their channels (if they have one).

Download Problems

Download MP3: I Vow to Thee, My County (MP3)

Copyright Information: The composition is in the public domain; however, the copyrights to the recording and arrangement are held by Kate Kwok. The composition is in the public domain because it was written in 1921 and the composers, Gustav Maher and Sir Cecil Spring Rice died in 1934 and 1918, respectively). However, if you use this song, you may get false matches in Content ID systems (like that used by YouTube) to other existing recordings). You should appeal false matches by providing information showing that the COMPOSITION is in the public domain (the year the song was written and the years the composers died) and showing that you are allowed to use this specific original recording and original arrangement (you can do this by giving the link to this page)

About the Featured Guest Series

The aims of the the Featured Guest Series are:
a) To provide talented but under-appreciated musicians more exposure
b) To offer my subscribers, website visitors and YouTube viewers a greater variety of music to choose from (and also further build up my own channel)

If you would like to have one of your songs featured in this series, do let me know. The only catch is that you would have to allow others to download the song and use it for non-commercial purposes as long as it is credited properly. Of course, you would retain all copyright over the song.

Terms of Use

These are the basic terms of use for the songs featured on this page. Please note that individual contributors may relax some of the restrictions. Any change, if this is the case, these changes will be shown in the description before each video.

The songs on this page are free to use for non-commercial videos or other non-commercial multimedia projects as long as they are properly credited to the appropriate composer(s) and/or performer(s); however, (1) the music may not be used in works which are pornographic (or which promote pornography) or that deliberately promote illegal activities or incite hatred, (2) you may not distribute the song in your own collection of music without permission from the composer, (3) you may not re-mix the song and/or use it in a mash-up without permission from the composer, and (4) you may not alter the tempo and/or pitch without permission from the composer. For commercial use (this includes monetized videos for the song Wild Illusion; however, you may use the other songs in monetized videos for free as long as the song is properly credited), you may contact the composer directly to seek permission and discuss the terms of use. The composer reserves the right to change these terms of use at any time, but any changes will not be applied retroactively.

  1. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog article or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!
