Johann Pachelbel (1653 - 1706) is best known for his "Canon and Gigue",
a frighteningly popular piece in the Classical Music repertory. One can
hardly listen to classical music on FM without hearing it again and again.
You can read a short biography of Pachelbel at
Details of his brief repertory can be found at
Unfortunately, the 'official' Pachelbel site,
appears to be offline at present.
And, for what it is worth, Pachelbel's Canon is one of my LEAST FAVORITE
items in classical music. I hate, loathe, and despise it. Anyone else
I guess there is just no accounting for taste. <G>
