Title: Canon in D
Composer: J. Pachelbel

Notes: Commonly used as a Processional, but also heard sometimes as a Prelude. Also known as Pachelbel's Canon, it's original title was Canon and Gigue for 3 violins and basso continuo. It was heard at the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. It's simple chordal progression has been appropriated in numerous commercial pop hits, including Pet Shop Boys cover of Go West; Green Day's Basket Case and Kylie Minogue's I Should Be So Lucky.
