Why Pachelbel’s Canon isn’t cool (apparently)

    As a cellist I have an appreciation for this post! However, I have to disagree with the gentleman’s conclusion. I love the Canon, precisely because of its repetition. I can play and play and play without paying attention to my part and just immerse myself in the flow of the violins. I was smitten from the first time I heard it at the end of my senior year in high school back in the 70’s, and have never once minded playing it, whether for weddings, concerts, or just for the heck of it. In fact, I once compiled my own cassette tape of about 10 different versions of it that I played again and again and again until my friends hated me and screamed when they saw me coming with my tape player. :snicker:

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
