This is a recorder quintet (not quartet) arrangement of Pachelbel’s Canon, with the lovely Gigue which originally followed it but is omitted from most arrangements. This music has been very carefully arranged and is interesting and stimulating to play for all players (even the bass gets a solo!). The parts are quite difficult - it is intended for an advanced group of players - but are all perfectly playable.

Parts are provided for Descant, Treble, Tenor 1, Tenor 2 and Bass recorders.

Which method of viewing music should I use?
