Johann Pachelbel : Canon in D - for Violin (or Cello or Clarinet) and Piano

Pachelbel's Canon is a very famous work which you will hear frequently on its own, though it is part of a bigger work called the Canon and Gigue in D. It was originally scored for 3 violins and basso continuo, but this version is an arrangement for Violin and Piano. Alternative parts are included for either Cello or Clarinet to replace the violin. Here is the Score which doubles as the piano part, and the 3 alternative solo parts for Violin, Cello or Clarinet. Some sections are played an octave lower on the Clarinet, otherwise they would be difficult to play without sounding screechy.

On mfiles we also have the original version of Pachelbel's Canon for 3 Violins and continuo consisting of Cello and Keyboard, plus arrangements for Piano Solo and for four SATB recorders meaning Soprano (or Descant), Alto, Tenor and Bass Recorders.
