Heavy Rotation: Canon In D by Johann Pachelbel

Standard

Ahhh Pachelbel’s Canon in D. Perfect Sunday music, wouldn’t you agree?

So Buckets of Moonbeams goes classical today. Or baroque. Or chamber. I’m not too sure which it fits into – I’m quite liberal with my use of genre classification for such things.

However, we can class it as one of the greatest pieces of music of all time. That its sheet music was lost over the centuries, meaning that it was nearly consigned to history (thankfully rediscovered in the early 20th century) is even more reason to cherish it.

I suppose it’s one of the ‘hits’ of classical music now. Pretty much everyone’s heard it or knows of it – but put your prejudices aside (before you scoff and dismiss it as wedding music or something of that ilk), and listen to it and enjoy it for what it is:

Perfection.
