Description

This is a straightforward, yet beautiful arrangement of the famous tune. It will require sensitive musicianship and good technique, but is such a fine piece, it practically plays itself!

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was a leading organist and composer of the Baroque period. Most of his compositions are sacred choral music and organ solos featuring elaborate counterpoint. He was a well-respected teacher, and one of his students was J.S. Bachs father. Pachelbel composed his Canon and Gigue in D Major for 3 Violins and Continuo, or bass-and chords accompaniment. The term canon signifies that all three violinists played the same part, starting at different times, just like a round. Pachelbels Canon is also a chaconne, which means it is built over a repeating chord progression.
