Méditation sur O Filii et Filiae – Denis Bédard

Today I present a performance of Denis Bedard’s “Meditation sur O Filii et Filiae” in celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday. “O Filii et Filiae” is a traditional hymn from the 17th century, believed to have been written by Jean Tisserand, a Franciscan monk, who used a popular melody of the time as the basis for the hymn. The hymn’s title translates to “O Sons and Daughters” and is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Denis Bedard’s “Meditation sur O Filii et Filiae” is a contemporary arrangement of the hymn that adds a layer of complexity to the original melody. Bedard is a Canadian composer and organist who has composed numerous works for the organ, choir, and chamber ensembles. His arrangement of “O Filii et Filiae” captures the spiritual essence of the hymn while infusing it with a sense of contemplation and introspection.
