This chime is tuned to the beloved sounds of Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D. A prolific composer and an accomplished organist, Pachelbel wrote for the organ, harpsichord and voice – his Canon in D is one of his few chamber works known today. Like most other works by Pachelbel and other composers from the 1600s, the Canon remained forgotten for centuries and was rediscovered in the 20th century. With its graceful melody and stately tempo, it is a popular choice as a wedding processional. This chime is an ideal wedding present, for within its measures we hear the sounds of hope, joy, love and promise.Over 30 years ago, Grammy award-winning musician and instrument designer Garry Kvistad created the first Woodstock Chime from an aluminum lawn chair he found in a landfill. Fascinated by the Scale of Olympos, a 7th century pentatonic scale that can’t be played on a modern piano, Garry cut and tuned the lawn chair tubes to the exact frequency of the ancient scale. The resulting Chimes of Olympos was the first Woodstock Chime and is still one of our best selling, musically-tuned windchimes. Garry and his wife Diane founded Woodstock Chimes in 1979 and still develop the chimes today. It remains a family-owned business in New York’s Hudson Valley.
