Referring to the semasiology thread: I was looking at a sheet music site, heading down the list towards Palestrina, and thought I'd share this with you-all:
Free pach sheet music
Free pachabel sheet music
Free pachabel sheet music
Free pachabel cannon sheet music
Free pachabel cannon in d sheet music
Free pachabel canon sheet music
Free pachabel canon in d sheet music
Free pachabel s canon sheet music
Free pachabell sheet music
Free pachabelle sheet music
Free pachabells cannon sheet music
Free pachabels canon sheet music
Free pachabels canon four cello sheet music
Free pachalbel sheet music
Free pachalbels canon duet sheet music
Free pachbel sheet music
Free pachbel canon sheet music
Free pachbel s canon sheet music
Free pachbell sheet music
Free pachebal sheet music
Free pachebal s canon sheet music
Free pachebel sheet music
Free pachebel canon sheet music
Free pachebel canon in d sheet music
Free pachebel s cannon sheet music
Free pachebel s canon sheet music
Free pachebell sheet music
Free pachebell sheet music
Free pachel sheet music
Free pachelbal canon sheet music


And then, finally:
Free pachelbel sheet music
I will say, I wasn't surprised to find misspellings of the man's name--just that there were so many different ones.

\:D HaaH! \:D ROFFEL!
Once you get poetic you really get going, Jackie!
Minimal poetry or justy simply postmodern?

Oh, by the by, I've got that free download site, thanks!

Like many, we had Pachelbel's Canon in D played as we cut our wedding cake. For most Philistines like us, that is all he is remembered for, though it is the only Canon he ever wrote.

ROFFEL

A Dutch variant of ROFL, or just a new pronunciation? Like skiffy for sci-fi.

Huh/??? "broodje op vloer lachende" /??? Hah! one more roffel.
Yes, that's how I pronounce it; at the same time as a Dutch word it means the rolling of drums.
But where did you get a " bread on the floor laughing? " Hah!

ROFL == roll on the floor laughing
roffel == the above initialism as an acronym
broodje == little bread, (Dutch) roll, German Brötchen
Hoohah == the sound of one guy larffing
I seed her carried away roll ...

I'm sorry you have to spell it all out for me. I miss the basics of English apparently. The simple word "roll " never crossed my mind. And I mistook rofl for "roar of laughter".
My, isn't it poor after a good two years of almost daily practice. \:\(

I wouldn't sell yourself short, Brannie. Your command of English (as a second or third language) is quite good. My feeble jokes oftentimes are in need of such ancillary apparatus criticus—footnotes, commentary, and the like—which is detrimental to humor in general. Keep up the good job!

I'wasn't that dead serious. ( just fishing for a fine compliment) As long as Jackie writes poetry like that I'll rofl along for a while.

Good gracious--I didn't write that--it's part of an actual list I found.

"roar of laughter". Just as good!
