Starting With Song #14, I am writing out classical songs with the Easy To Read Music Notation, so that beginners can learn the bass clef easier.

MOONLIGHT SONATA II

I am presently working on my origianl composition called Moonlight Sonata II.  It simply draws from the mood of the origianl Moonlight Sonata made famous by Beethoven which is listed below.  Anyhow, you can hear the beginning of the first 9 of 66 measures of my new Moonlight Sonata II.

1.  MOONLIGHT SONATA, FIRST MOVEMENT - Ludwig Beethoven

2.  PRELUDE IN C MAJOR - Johann Sebastien Bach

3.  CANON IN D - Johann Pachelbel PDF / Sheet Music / midi file

The Canon in D Major or ( Kanon ) is a well known musical composition from the Baroque period.  There have been literally thousands of arrangements of this song.  It is frequently heard at weddings.  Even famous popular singers down through the years have borrowed heavily from this wonderful song.

Pachelbel's life extended from 1653 to 1706.  He began his musical career under the tutelage of Schwemmer and then went on to study music at the University in Altdorf and in Ratisbon.  Then he moved to Vienna in 1671 where he again became a student, but also achieved the position of deputy organist at the Imperial chapel.  He taught music to members of the Bach family and his style greatly influenced J.S. Bach, especially in the area of chorale arrangements.

A Canon is a type of music in which the melodic line is often repeated and imitated by other instruments or voices.  Instruments are added one by one as the music progresses, creating echoing, and interweaving melodies.

This is an interesting song, because a lot of people like to listen to it when they are happy, but they also find comfort in listening to it when they are sad.  It seems to have a positive effect on people when they hear it.  It is used sometimes in the area of music therapy.

4.  EINE KLEINE NACHTMUSIK - Amadeus Wolfgang Mozart  PDF FILE / MIDI FILE
