Hi everyone I was just wondering what everyone thought of this beautiful piece of music. I only recently came across it and glad i did. I'm not usually into the classical music but this piece if so uplifting it truly is wonderful in my opinion
what do you think?

And a last one

Allegri - Miserere

It was for 150 years only played in the sistine chapel 'till Mozart heard it there and transcribed it from his memory

Pachabel's canon although simplistic is a heavenly, uplifting piece of music. It's been used in many pop songs such as obviously in Coolio's C U When you Get There, N Dubz We Dance On (which amazingly made me like one of their songs ) plus less obviously but still present in The Farm's Altogether Now.

I came into this thread to mention the N-Dubz/Bodyrox song, but the poster above me already mentioned it lol. Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1BkR760o94

Chipmunk and Keri Hilson also had a song last year, which didn't quite sample it, but sounded very similar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKrq8QUOIXc

I can play Canon on the radio. I agree, it's a beautiful song!

And a depressingly large number of other contemporary tunes as well. In fact the best selling single from each of the last three years, i.e. Poker Face; Love The Way You Lie; and Someone Like You, all use the chord progression from Pachelbel's Canon.

When you mention Pachabel Canon, this should get a mention

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um9KsrH377A

rbautz: Allegri - Miserere is simply magical, especially the top notes (Tallis Scholar's track must be on youtube)

Another moving classical piece is Chopin's Nocturne in C Sharp Minor

Not the same era or style, but Schubert's Ave Maria is a lovely, serene, simple classical piece. My favourite versions are all soprano and piano, rather than choirboy and organ.

Funny, but that's the bass line always the same by ricercata, kanons, chaconne etc.

Here is the crown of the Barock the monumental Ciaccona
written in memory of Bach's first wife, Maria Barbara Bach.

Johann Sebastian Bach Partita No.2 in D Minor,BWV1004, Chaconne

Brian Eno did an interesting version, gradually slipping out of time..

Plus his own An Ending (Ascent) has potential as a modern complimentary piece!

Loads of modern songs have ripped off Pachelbel and his canon:

This version got quite a bit of coverage a few years back:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvDedo8r1Fk

But my favourite classical piece is Toccata and Fugue in D Minor as played on this amazing 300 year old organ:

Great piece along with other composers who created such amazing music from the likes of Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Handel, Telemann, Bach (all of them), Bizet, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Rudel, Rachmaninov, Samuel Barber etc etc I love early music ie Renaissance music as well.

Best arrangement of Canon in D is by Brian Crain IMO Fantastic pianist as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKhKwVYP4z0

Some renaissance music composed in the 13th century

I was waiting for someone to bring up Canon Rock. Truly a wonderful display of guitar playing abilities.
