Among the offerings of Sheet Music Plus (SMP) are licensed arrangements of copyrighted songs through its “ArrangeMe” service. SMP also permits music creators to self-publish music other than arrangements of copyrighted songs.

Caution: some items listed on SMP as being for "carillon" may not in fact be intended for carillon as defined by the GCNA.

Several works published by the GCNA are available exclusively via SheetMusicPlus.com due to licensing restrictions.

Aside from works published by the GCNA, members offering their own carillon music for sale through SMP currently include:

(Members who wish to be added to this list should email web@gcna.org)

Because SMP does not currently recognize carillon as a separate instrument category, those offering carillon music through SMP are encouraged to put the phrase "for carillon" in the title of each piece to allow easier searching.
