Denis Bedard
We have always been asked for the music of Canadian organist and composer Denis Bedard and until recently it has been difficult to obtain, the only option being direct ordering from Canada. However now Cheldar publications have a dedicated UK agent and we are delighted to have all the organ titles listed on our website! The first link below takes you to the Denis Bedard pages to browse through but we also list below a few highlights:

Denis Bedard writes good stuff.  not horrendously difficult, well-constructed, useful and sometimes very humorous (try the Cat Suite or Fantasie on 'O Canada').  Worth looking into if you haven't tried him before.

Agree absolutely! Easy on the ear and fitting well under fingers and feet. The pedal solo toccata in one of very few pedal only pieces from which the listener can actually derive pleasure! All  come from the RSCM.  If you want some real fun try Mons Leidvin Takle - you will find him on Youtube, but the scores have to come fro the frozen North! Hymn to Freedom is a cracker!
