Pachelbel’s Canon in D | Part I


Why would you want a canon at your wedding? Planning to dispose of certain guests?? No but seriously, Pachelbel’s Canon isn’t a thunderous ancient weapon, it’s a piece of music, it’s gorgeous, and it was written by a 17th century German composer, one Johann Pachelbel. He was busy and successful, and if he’d been around to claim his Canon copyright today, he’d be very rich. My guest, organist Joy Leilani, explains why happy couples love this music, and I figure out that the life of a working musician really hasn’t changed since Pachelbel’s day – it’s still all about the networking.
