Pachelbel's Canon arranged for ukulele ensemble

ByThomas Preece

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D is perhaps one of the world's most famous pieces of classical music. Originally composed in the 1600s, the piece lay in obscurity for many centuries, until it was rediscovered in 1968 and suddenly became unexpectedly popular. It has firmly established its place as a standard of popular classical music. While most previous ukulele arrangements of the Canon have attempted to arrange all of the piece's parts onto one instrument, this arrangement takes the opposite approach, using three ukuleles for the three violins of the original, making the piece very easy to play, and keeping in with the concept of a canon as a piece in which multiple instruments play the same relatively simple part at different times, creating a more complex and interesting sound texture.
