Pachelbel's grand Chorale Partita with Seven Variations in G is based on the 17th Century Protestant German hymn tune "Alle Menschen müssen sterben" (All of Mankind is Mortal) by Jakob Hintze. The original form of the work was in C major with eight variations, composed for Organ. Bach, being greatly influenced by Pachelbel, later took up the melody for use in one of his Cantatas.
Keith Terrett has done a great job arranging these elaborate variations of about 6 minutes in length for a Trombone quintet of advanced performers.
