Canon in D
Pachelbel, J

Musicians Publications presents Johann Pachebel s Canon in D arranged for flute choir plus by Bill Holcombe. Scored for 4 C flutes, alto flute, and bass flute, this arrangement also includes an optional bassoon, cello, and/or bass clarinet part to help fill out the bass.

The immensely popular canon by Johann Pachelbel is known in orchestral and new-age' arrangements from the late twentieth century. In its original version it is paired with a lively gigue and scored for three solo violins and continuo, following a 17th-century tradition of music for three equal high voices or instruments with bass continuo. This tradition dates back to the very beginning of the Baroque, when trios of virtuoso singers such as the Three Ladies of Ferrara became international stars. In Pachelbel s canon each of the violins plays exactly the same music two bars apart, while the continuo instruments play a repeating two-bar ground.

- Byron Schenkman

Holcombe s arrangement follows a Theme & Variations pattern in which each time the progression repeats, it is embellished in some line, featuring different voices of the ensemble with each variation before all coming together for a grand finish.
