    Default Pachelbel's Canon for train horns

    If you are familiar with this lovely baroque piece , but you may just about recognise the apparently pitch perfect sound played on train horns.

    It just doesn't cut it in my view.



    Train enthusiasts and Baroque specialists unite: this is the video for you.

    An enduring Baroque masterpiece has been given an adventurous new outing, and there’s no chance of this performance falling off the rails.

    YouTuber Pavel Jirásek has reworked Pachelbel’s Canon for 3 violins and basso continuo with a grand selection of blaring train horns, apparently collected from footage taken around the UK and Europe.

    The horns, pitch-perfectly assembled, are synced to a backing track. Pavel made the video back in 2017, but it’s just been rediscovered and people are appreciating its magnificence.

    Maybe there was a mix-up in the type of conductor booked? In any case, it’s clearly a masterpiece. Do watch and enjoy.

    Feel free to say the train horns attempt is naff! There is nothing magnificent about it. Just a bit bemusing.

    I'm not sure what to think of it. I heard it from another musician friend that it is not Perfect-Pitch. However the idea is quite novel and fun.
