The full work of Pachelbel's Canon in D is available now from iTunes for just £4.99.

Pachelbel is a prime example of a 'one-hit wonder'; his Canon In D dwarfs all of the rest of his output. This piece of music is a firm favourite in all sorts of environments, not least as an accompaniment to the walk down the aisle at weddings.

Many composers wrote canons – but nobody else achieved quite the same fame for it. It’s a simple idea in which a melody is played and then imitated by one or more other instruments. The children’s nursery rhymes Frère Jacques and Three Blind Mice are often sung in a canon, sometimes called a round.
