Canon in D (string trio: – violin, viola, cello)
Title: Canon in D
Composer: Johann Pachelbel, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin; Viola; Cello
Printout: 5 pages
Note: No one needs to tell you that the Pachelbel Canon is an essential piece for gig players, or that most versions are poorly done. This arrangement keeps the upper voices in the correct octave without putting the viola into its brilliant high register. Apologies to cellists, but it’s not my fault.
