New Aria of Johann Pachelbel

I have just completed a new Aria of Johann Pachelbel (1653 – 1706): ARIA QUARTA.

This aria is part of a collection of The Hexachordum Apollinis; six arias with variations, originally published in 1699. Composed for harpsichord or organ and now for the first time arranged for classical guitar (all at intermediate level).

The original source of this keyboard music can be found here.

In addition to Aria Quarta, Aria Secunda is already available in the Portfolio as free download. The other arias will follow soon.

An example of Aria Quarta for piano by Alexander Bakhchiev can be heard on Youtube.
