Pachelbel in the Morning
A Moment in Time

Pachelbel's Canon in D
waiting to be played again,
the room illuminated
- for one precious moment -
by golden morning light

Time is still a-flying
6:01 AM

"What is love? 'Tis not hereafter;
Present mirth has present laughter;
What's to come is still unsure.
In delay there lies no plenty,
Then come and kiss me sweet and twenty;
Youth's a stuff will not endure."
Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

-> Canon in D, from "London Symphony Orchestra Plays Great Classics"
-> "Gatter ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying
" - poem by Robert Herrick

  1. What a sweet post to appeal to all senses! I've not played the canon at a piano for many years, but this makes me remember how I love the piece. Beautiful images and a lovely Shakespeare quote. I saw Twelfth Night recently and loved the production.

  2. How I wish for that beautiful music to radiate. have a great weekend :)

  3. This moment feels like the wisp of a dream....musical, visual, poetic...dreamy...

  4. -happy sigh-



    Even if I am not familiar with the music...

    I love the photography...

  5. Well, I'm also listening to music this morning. Red Fang, a beer drinking heavy metal band

  6. Can't go wrong with Canon In D

  7. Thank you all for your kind comments! :-)

  8. That was one of my mother's favourite pieces. Very soothing.

    And Twelfth Night is one of my favourite Shakespearean plays. I've seen several productions and have a film version from the 90s.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
