Canon In D



  Written as chamber music, Pachelbel's "Canon in D" experienced an enormous surge in popularity in the 1970's. It has become one of the most recognized musical compositions and is widely used in many venues. Much of this piece is easy to ring, but it does contain a few challenging sections. By making a few simple adjustments, even a novice should be able to accomplish ringing this piece with relative ease. This arrangement is 113 measures.
