The canon is a contrapuntal device that has been used by composers throughout the history of music. From the seventeenth century comes this canon, Johann Pachelbel's best-known work. This beautiful piece has found its way into literally hundreds of venues, from the concert hall to the soundtracks of television commercials and movies. This dignified setting begins quietly, and as voices echo the melodic line, it builds to a fitting finale. This is quality scoring of a world-famous melody. (duration 2:50).
