Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Christmas Canon

I saw on TV recently that the famed Trans-Siberian Orchestra will be performing at Key Arena in Seattle on Nov. 21.  This called to mind what is probably their most famous piece:  "Christmas Canon," based on Johann Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major." My mind returns to a certain moment, years ago, when this played on the radio at work, and a young woman sighed and said, dreamily, "this is the nicest song in the world."

She may have been right.
