Johann Pachelbel was a German Baroque composer,
organist and teacher, who brought the south German
organ tradition to its peak. He composed a large body
of sacred and secular music, and his contributions to
the development of the chorale prelude and fugue have
earned him a place among the most important composers
of the middle Baroque era.
Pachelbel is best known for the Canon in D Major, the
only canon he wrote ? although a true canon at the
unison in three parts, it is often regarded more as a
passacaglia, and it is in this mode that I created this
somewhat unique arrangement for the pedal harp.
