These two works, which complete Gillette's series of tapes produced for Classical Video, are visual translations of Johann Pachelbel's composition, Canon in D Major. Each resonates with a different evocation of the music. Canon 1 depicts rich landscape imagery in a joyous, sensuous interpretation, while Canon 2 is a muted, more contemplative version, in which images of a summer rain and the subsequent clearing evoke regeneration.

Music: Johann Pachelbel.
