Canon in D

When Hubby and I got married we did so on New Year's Eve in our backyard. It was perfect. Our four children, his Aimee and Mitch, mine Matthew and Jessica, stood with us and we became a family. One of my favorite memories of the night (we partied first and had the ceremony at midnight) was hearing the opening notes of Pachelbel's Canon in D and down the stairs one of the kids after another walked, me last and walking out the back door. Our backyard was lit by the thousands of twinkle lights Hubby had spent two days stringing from the house to the fence, friends and family stood for me but all I could see were the children and Hubby there waiting for me as the notes of the Canon faded.

I still tear up every time I hear this song. So in the beautiful age of the internet I can find many lovely versions of this song. But there are also some fun versions that make me smile. I thought I might share them here with you.

So here you go...

The classic version,




a unique and incredible guitar version of Canon Rock,




a fun percussion arrangement,



and to end one of the funniest uses of classical music. I just love this guy.

Hi Laura, I just wanted to say that I, too, absolutely love P's Canon in D and the Christmas version always pulls at my heartstrings. But I must admit that the funny version you put on your blog had me laughing and giggling. I've got to pass it on...

Merry Christmas... Keep up the great blogging.
