Pachelbel's Canon is a very famous work which you will hear in various places, either in its original form or in various arrangements. It is very popular at Weddings and the melody, bass or chord sequence have been borrowed for songs, e.g. the melody in Coolio's "C U When U Get There" and the chords in "All Together Now" by The Farm, while "Memories" by Maroon 5 uses the chords and a small fragment of melody. This video on Youtube shows those Pop Song connections in more detail. The original piece is part of Pachelbel's "Canon and Gigue in D" for 3 violins and Basso Continuo. This piano arrangement is a shortened and simplified version of the "Canon" part of this work, and below you will see the sheet music and a video of this piece. And here is an alternative video showing a piano roll animation of Pachelbel's Canon. On mfiles we also have an arrangement of the same piece for four SATB recorders meaning Soprano (or Descant), Alto, Tenor and Bass Recorders.
