Perfect for weddings!

Here's a classically-influenced piece reminiscent of Pachelbel’s Canon in D (but with a more interesting cello part!) to add to your gig repertory as wedding season approaches.  It has just the right character providing an alternative for brides who want something traditional sounding but find the Mendelssohn and Wagner marches too corny.
