Christmas Canon

Pachabel’s Canon in D, the Canon for Peace, is one of my all-time favorite pieces of classical music.  It is right up there at or near the top of a list that also includes

  • Beethoven’s 8th Symphony (most especially Ode To Joy)
  • Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata
  • Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (not exactly classical, but classic jazz)
  • Camille Saint-Sean’s Carnival of the Animals Finale (one of the funniest clips of film the Disney studios ever did in Fantasia 2000)
  • Poncelli’s Dance of the Hours
  • Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker
  • Beethoven’s 6th Symphony (The Pastoral Symphony)

This particular version of Pachabel is a favorite.  It’s a piece my family loves to play at Christmas time.  It is performed by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.  (TSO to fans.)  This version includes the lyrics.  Enjoy!!

Merry Christmas!!
