Let’s start with a canon

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

What could be more fun than getting together with a group of friends and singing canons? Not much. This is a little three-voice canon I came up with nearly thirty years ago… I’ve presented it in g-minor to fit gratefully within a range of voices, but I’m also including an audio clip of a version in c-minor for organ (with a cheating tièrce de picardie in a fourth voice at the end… y’know: just because). It wouldn’t pass counterpoint class, but it’s still enjoyable.
