Johann Pachelbel : Canon in D (arranged for four SATB recorders)

This canon (in the older sense of the word meaning a repeating ground bass with variations) is a well-known work with many arrangements available for a variety of ensembles. The original piece is part of Pachelbel's "Canon and Gigue in D" for 3 violins and Basso Continuo. This arrangement is a shortened and simplified version of the "Canon" part of this work, for four SATB recorders meaning Soprano (or Descant), Alto, Tenor and Bass Recorders. Below you can play a graphic video of the music or the mp3 file, and here are printable PDF versions of the four parts: Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass and the Full Score. On mfiles we also have a piano arrangement of the same piece.
