Hexachordum Apollinis is considered Pachelbel’s finest composition in variation form. It consists of six Arias each comprising a theme and variations.
The first five encompass the span of a perfect fifth but the sixth is something of an enigma; its home key deviates from the expected sequence forming the hexachord, it is in triple time while the others are in quadruple and it contains eight variations as against the five or six of the previous Arias.
This final Aria, sub-titled ”Aria Sebaldina” hexacbordum the patron saint of the church in Nuremberg where Pachelbel was organist, has long intrigued scholars. John Butt is a highly respected scholar, although his energies have been concentrated more towards the performance practices current in Bach’s time. He certainly practises what he preaches.

Butt’s choice would seem particularly sensible.
