This Pachelbel is not for church...



... yet what virtuosity! I ran across this performance while looking for something on YouTube. I had seen it before a while back (I may have even blogged it, I don't remember!) - but it's the kind of thing that you can watch a few times.

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was a Lutheran Kantor (church musician) and is said to have influenced another great Lutheran church musician named Johann Sebastian Bach.

Definitely not for Divine Service but cool to listen to in the car, man. I appreciate a good guitarist, just not in church.

Have you ever heard the Pachelbel Rant? It's been around the internet for awhile, and it expresses my sentiments exactly . . .
