The well-loved "Canon in D" by Johann Pachelbel has been beautifully recreated in this gentle setting by Mary McDonald. The simple, yet elegant, melody is further enhanced by the text from the time-honored favorite carol, "Silent Night! Holy Night!" This piece can be performed with keyboard, or you may opt to add the optional flute part (included in the score). In addition, a stunning string quartet and flute part is available separately and will allow this piece to really shine!

Inst. Parts Available (choral).

Lovely arrangement bringing forward the Canon in D into modern time. Excellent opportunity for director/teacher to provide insights into the way great music is passed down through the centuries. The use of the SILENT NIGHT text is a nice touch to bring fresh familiarity to the anthem.
