About Pachelbel's Canon in D

Like so many baroque masterpieces, Pachelbel's Canon fell into obscurity after the composer's lifetime. Rediscovered in the 20th Century, Pachelbel's Canon in D quickly became one of the most popular and best selling classical pieces of all time. Its 1970s rise to popularity started with a string orchestra recording (later featured in the film Ordinary People). The canon became so ubiquitous that it is easy to forget it was rarely played for centuries.

Though we don't know the circumstances of its composition, it is a wonderful piece that has influenced pop music for decades. Whether during a wedding processional of friends and family or scanning FM radio, Pachelbel's cannon quickly stands out with its iconic chord progression and striking variations.
