Canon Noel combines the iconic Pachelbel theme with graceful melodies from The First Noel and Hark! the Herald Angels Sing. This lyrical setting in D major includes just a little shifting in the bass and easy high-3 finger patterns in violin 2 and viola. Providing a wonderful study in legato playing with slurs in 3/4, the simple scale-based motion and frequent doubling will give the developing ensemble a full, rich sound as all sections get to play melodic material. A beautiful winter concert selection with a classical touch!
