Canon in D

Pachelbel’s Canon, like his other works, although popular during his lifetime, went out of style, and remained in obscurity for centuries. Since the 1980s, however, it has also been used often in weddings and funeral ceremonies in the Western world.

Canon in D by Pachelbel is one of many musical numbers that Palm Strings has learnt in order to provide the ideal live music at the various weddings, birthday parties, functions and even funerals at which it plays. Customers frequently place requests with us which we learn free of charge in order to provide the right music for their occasion.
