Pachelbel's Carol - 5 guitars

Pachelbel's Carol - Guitar Quintet

Everyone has heard of Pachelbel's Canon. What is Pachelbel's Carol? Well, it's a a quirky arrangement I've written with a "make the audience go OOOH" piece - it's the "ostinato" chord sequence in Pachelbel's Canon which develops and increases in texture before bursting into life as The First Nowell.

The version here suits 5 guitars (and also works well with a large ensemble).

I've also published a version for 6 guitars - identical except for a slower build to the carol...
