5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect -- and not merely for Pachabel's Canon February 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Many of the other reviewers have focussed on the beauty of Paillard's rendition of the famous Pachabel Canon. It's certainly my favourite version -- nothing else comes close. But the real joy of this CD is that the Canon is not the highlight; instead, it's just one of many highlights. The Pachabel suite is almost as delicious as its more famous sibling work, and the Fasch concerto and symphonies are all superb. You may buy this CD because you want the Canon, but you'll listen to it over and over because each and every piece is a complete delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our Favorite recording of Pachelbel's Canon in D September 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is the best recording of Pachelbel's Canon in D that I have found. when My family fell in love with this peice we purchased many different version of it Until we finally found the one we LOVED. We found it as a recording released in vinyl by the Musical Heritage society. When our vinayl copied developed some warping we could not find a replacement. This is it. You will love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Most BEAUTIFUL Version of CANON, EVER!!! February 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have a much longer review of this version on 'Canon In D and Other Baroque favorites' Also by Paillard.As this same version is also on that one.
I cannot say enough about this version of Canon. I've been more than obsessed by it ever since I heard it in and at the end of 'Ordinary People'. I stood transfixed, crying at the soothing-gentleness and intense power of it. I had my father 'loop' it. (make it play over and over again). I've performed Ballet to it.... I play it for everyone who knows me, and make sure they know to connect me, my soul, my personality, with that version of Canon In D. It is sooo incredibly intensely unforgettable. It marks you for life. You will never forget it once you hear it. It is so perfect, Pachabel must've heard this music in Heaven and transcribed it for our earthly ears. You will never be the same after being exposed to such an incredibly rich, soul-touching piece of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agree with most, this is the best Pachelbel Canon October 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I waited many years for this recording to come out on CD, and I found it last year in Japan.
I still remember the first time I heard this version in a Toronto record store, I stopped and had to ask the cashier what she was playing, bought the vinyl record and wore it out in no time.
The Canon is one of those pieces that is grossly overplayed, but this one is special, heartfelt and somehow makes all other versions dissatisfying.
You will not be sorry to get this mid-price CD. Sound quality is medicore, you then shouldn't buy music for sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last it's available on CD August 12, 2004
By ggagnon
Format:Audio CD
Way back in 1974, the RCA LP of Pachelbel's Canon and Fasch trumpet concertos by the Paillard Orchestra was released. It became a hit record, a crossover from Classical, and an overused cliche forever afterward. It was because of this album, that everyone else immediately discovered Pachelbel and released a version of it. The Paillard Orchestra version is still unique because of its slower pacing, and as stated in another's review, more pronounced plucked (pizacata?) strings. It is still the FIRST AND BEST version, everyone else's is too fast, too scrunched, overpowering any continuo. Don't know about the sound quality on this CD, but digital is not always better than analog because of sampling rates and clipping. The pairing with other (now well-known) pieces by Pachelbel, and the wonderful Maurice Andre playing Fasch still make this album the best, unique, a keeper, and archival material for being the first version of the Canon to start a 30 year craze. Thank goodness I now have a CD in case my favorite LP (along with the Paillard Orchestra's Bach Branderberg Concertos) can no longer find a turntable to play it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Rapturous version ever April 15, 2005
By Marty
Format:Audio CD
When this recording first came out ages ago on vinyl, it created a sensation. Phone lines to classical music stations were jammed with callers wanting to know who performed the Canon. Bob Kerr used it as the ending to his Off the Record show every weekday on CBC Stereo in Canada. People wore out their LP's listening to the title track over and over.
To this day, it remains the most alluring version ever recorded. The other works on this set are very appealing as well. Worth every dime and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music for the Soul December 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you are on a desert island and have only one piece of music, this is THE ONE. This is the ultimate, interpretation of Pachelbel's Canon in D. I played it for a 90 year old woman. About 3/4 of the way through, a bony hand came out between the covers and wiped a tear. Later she said, "This is the piece of music I wish to hear in my last moments."

5.0 out of 5 stars The original Canon in D Major interpretation April 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is either the remastered recording of J.Pachelbel -- J.F. Fasch "Music for Chamber Orchestra" or a close remake of the best interpretation (in my opinion) ever. The original came out some 25 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pachebel and Fasch outstanding performances, great music
I love all the music and the interpretations the orchestra did, especially the Pachebel Canon. There's only one complaint. The CD isn't long enough. Wonderful music.
