Pachelbel's Kanon

I somehow remembered this beautiful piece yesterday.

I really enjoy it. It is simple yet elegant. It almost brings tears to my eyes, and I don't understand why.

Wikipedia has an entry and some Vorbis files to listen to.

As a sidenote, if your under-evolved player doesn't read Vorbis, you can give WinAmp and VLC a shot.

Edit: I found another legal copy on the Internet Archive, this one being fully orchestrated, not just a piano subset :)
