Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) Johann Pachelbel was a leading organist and composer of the Baroque pe r i od. Mo s t o f hi s 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. Bachas father. Pachelbel composed his Canon and Gigue in D Major for 3 Violins and Continuo, or bass-andchords accompaniment. The term acanona signi! es that all three violinists played the same part, starting at different times, just like a round. Pachelbelas Canon is also a chaconne, which means it is built over a repeating chord progression.
