The Catholic music website, CatholicMusicNetwork.com, launched a digital music service this week allowing users to purchase and download individual songs by Catholic artists in the Mp3 format.
Priced at just $.99 per song the new feature provides users with an additional avenue for acquiring Catholic music along with that of purchasing CDs and tapes at the CatholicMusicNetwork.com online music store.
The digital music download service is ideal for iPods and other MP3 players, which have become increasingly popular among consumers and was a natural outgrowth of CatholicMusicNetwork.com’s leadership in providing online access to music by Catholic artists in both English and Spanish.
Individual songs can be purchased for $.99/each, and in some cases users will be able to download entire albums.
According to Doug Archer, co-founder of CatholicMusicNetwork.com, "This service will allow the public around the world to have faster access to music by their favorite Catholic artists at a reasonable cost and without additional shipping expenses."
Suggesting that Catholic Mp3s would be a great addition to the iPods and other players parents will be buying for their teenagers this Christmas, Archer asked, “Rather than an empty iPod, why not give one filled with Catholic music?”
Launched in 2000, CatholicMusicNetwork.com has become one of the most prominent online sources of music by Catholic artists from both the English and the Spanish-speaking worlds.
