Quick Overview

Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D has long been one of the most popular "classical" pieces, and has already been connected to Christmas through various setting of the piece. In this arrangment, the Canon is combined with popular Christmas carols as part of the fabric of the piece. Carols like Hark, the Herald Angels Sing and The First Noel fit nicely over the harmonic progression of Pachelbel's famous canon. This arrangement will work nicely with band alone or with the option to include choir (CM9401).
