Johann Pachelbel - Chaconne in F minor

Have you ever wondered what the "B Side" is of a composer known for a single great work?  Johann Pachelbel is renowned for his Canon in D (so renowned, in fact, that it has been parodied).  As it turns out, Pachelbel wasn't a one hit wonder, he was quite prolific.  His Chaconne in F minor is perhaps his next best known work.  He composed it for organ, as with most of his works.

Amazing music. It takes two hands and two feet to play a tune.

Thanks for pulling out all the stops to bring this to us.

(Just back from Boothbay -- my first time there.) Just gorgeous.
