Ordering Music Directly From Corda

Many music shops in the UK will supply our music and there are shops in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Scandinavia, U.S.A., Japan and Australia who stock some of our editions.
But if you prefer to order directly from us, please:

Short whinge about banks (and careful not to try a Spoonerism with that one!)

The most cost effective way for you to pay is by credit card, since this avoids paying extra in heavy bank charges for cheques, particularly from overseas. The banks make a big play in their advertising of being the friends of small businesses, but in practice their charges make it very difficult for a small concern such as ours because they levy almost any fee they like for changing foreign currency cheques, as well as charging us just for writing out our own cheques. They are of course quite happy to look after our money on deposit (though without paying us any interest) and even charge us for paying into the account. This means that a customer in Canada who orders 20 dollars of music could end up paying at least 15 dollars extra (i.e.75 per cent extra) just to cover the bank charges for cheques in England.


We accept credit card payments for all major credit and debit cards. Please contact us for details of secure transmission. Order Office

Approximate guide to Post and Packing:

The UK Post Office has just increased its prices (May 2012) by a buttock-clenching 30% and more. We will do our best to find alternatives where possible, but post & packing prices will inevitably have to increase.

The weight of music in each package is quite variable, depending on what has been ordered. We will adjust your postage cost downwards if the packet is lighter than might be expected, but we may also need to add a small amount if the weight is heavier than expected. If you give us a contact number or email address, we can tell you the postage cost at the time of packing.
