I walked up the aisle to this song in my wedding 11 years agao. I loved it so much that my bridesmaids did as well, that way when the high part of the song came, I was walking up the aisle, it was simply lovely. I will always cherish it.

I Like the emotions that this song evokes for me... a true front contender for my 11-11-11 wedding.

Lisa says...
The first Christmas my fiance and I spent together, I heard this song played as a Christmas carol. The only thing I could see in my mind was myself walking down the aisle to John with this song playing. 4 Christmases later, we are engaged and planning our wedding for July 21, 2012. This will be the song I walk to... The only thing I think of when I hear it is him and I, and our love story. It's a beautiful song, and I cry every time I hear it.

Seashell says...
Most beautiful song I have ever heard in my life......

Gorgeous!

Christeena says...
I remember playing this in highschool band and i always loved it one of my fav's. I will walk down the aisle to this song. It brings back alot of memories for me.

Angela Hogan Notary and Weddings says...
It is a beautiful song, I totally agree. PLEASE DON'T use it for your wedding as it was written for funerals!! I know no one wants to start out with hanging over your head. Its bad luck.
Listen to to pieces written by G. F. Handel. I used one of his pieces and I've been married 25 years! I'm not really one of those kooky "break a mirroe, seven 7 bad luck" or anything but Canon in D was written for funerary music.....Just sayin'.
Good luck to all of you!
Angela Hogan Notary/Wedding Officiant

Angela Hogan Notary and Weddings says...
Oh, my Lord! I made so many typos, I did actually come off as a kook! What I meant to say was that now you know the piece was written for funerals, it might dampen the day. You know the old saying, "Break a mirroR, 7 years bad luck will follow." I don't happen to subscribe to that one myself but please, ladies, listen to some pieces written by G.F.Handel. He was a brilliant composer without all the "fanfare." I walked down the aisle to one of his pieces 25 years ago and we're still married. Yes, to the same person! You'd be shocked at how many people ask me if I've been married to the same person for 25 years! My middle daughter has her Masters in Classical Music, so whether we like it or not, we are quite frequently"educated" on composers and what songs they wrote and for whom. Sorry, I just nodded off. Anyway, please don't use Canon in D as it was really and truly written as a funerary piece. Check out Handel, totally underrated and more talented, in my daughter's opinion, anyway!!

Heidi says...
This is very beautiful. But, it IS too somber to used on what is supposed to be the happiest day of your life.

Sheila says...
I don't find it somber or a "funeral piece" at all. If in fact that was the inspiration, makes no difference to me. I love it and will definitely be walking down the aisle to it!!

stephanie says...
I will be walking down the ailse to this, never heard of it being made for funerals and its a truly amazing song, cant wait!!!

Private User says...
I am going to use mostly classical instrumental songs for my wedding....this one just got added to my list. :)

sharon says...
I added this to my binder, always thought this music was most beautiful to walk down the isle to.

Christina says...
Canon in D was not written for a funeral. In fact, it is largely unknown as to what type of occasion it was written for. Defiantly not a funeral, though. However, I will say, music's meaning is almost wholly dependent on the listener and how they intemperate them. So I believe it is up to the person listening to this piece that will allow them to feel when it is appropriate to use. I will be using this as my processional song at my wedding next year. :)

Anonymous says...
I never heard this song played more beautifully than this post. The crescendos are outstanding. Very moving.

Patricia says...
I love this song. I think i'm going to let the flowers girls walk down the aisle to it.

pearl says...

Rebecca says...

Rachel says...
I remember when I was a little girl I said this would be the song I would play at my wedding

Ashley says...

Michelle says...
I have wanted this song played at my wedding since I can remember, We are being married in a very old church with a pipe organ which has the most beautiful sound, I am so excited to walk down the isle. :)

Julie says...
We are getting married Oct. 27, 2012 on a Carnival Cruise Ship in Florida and yes this is the song I am walking down the ai

Julie says...
aisle too! Simply breathtakingly gorgeous!!!

Kate says...
I am looking for this exact version. There are so many Canon Ds that I can't find this exact one. Does anyone know what orchestra played this version?

Stacey says...
Love this one too... so many choices. will be married 9/14/12 :)

Lauren says...
As a music major I can't stand this piece! It's so overused and boring that every other music major makes fun of it! Pick something with intensity and meaning instead of a chordal warm up tune. Sorry Pachelbel.

Tanise says...
I agree, Lauren. Cannon is the most annoying song. It's not Pachelbel's fault. It's that EVERYBODY uses this song. Be unique. No Cannon.

Jamie says...
Lauren or Tanise, do you have any suggestions for something similar?

Zondra-daya says...
I LOVE THIS SONG ESPECIALLY SINCE I CAN PLAY IT ON MY VIOLIN!
