Pachelbel's Canon in D is among the most recognized and popular works in the classical repertoire. Although the only canon he every wrote, there is true genius in this work which has been arranged for every conceivable combination of instruments. This arrangement by Gordon Cherry for Violin and Piano (in the original key) captures the true spirit of the work. About four minutes in length, this work is for intermediate to advanced performers and works for weddings and other celebrations, or as background music, or even a recital.
The mp3 music sample is performed by Paula Wise, Violin and Joyce Cherry on Digital Keyboard using a string pad sound. Recording by Gordon Cherry.
