    This is a very nice piano arrangement of the Canon in D. A good study in "balance" of tone, pedaling as well as dynamics.

    Out of all the simplified Canon in D arrangements, this is the best I've found. Even early intermediate students can follow as the main theme is repeated and augmented in an understandable progression. Yay!
