Pachelbel's Canon in D

This You Tube video shows the music for Pachelbel's celebrated "Canon in D," performed by Voices of Music, accompanied by scrolling graphical and symbolic scores.

 

A canon is wherer there is strict imitation. Once one part starts to play or sing a melody, another part enters shortly afterwards with exactly the same melody.

 

Try to answer the questions below:

 

1) How many beats are there in a bar?

2) Is the piece major or minor?

3) What concept best describes the bass line?

 

Follow the score and see if you can find where the strict imitation of the canon starts.
