- RECORDED on Azica Records by Pam Youngblood and Gabriel Bita.
- Texas UIL Prescribed Music List for all-state audition repertoire.
- REVIEW: "The arrangement is quite faithful to the Ives score, and Dorff expertly altered the articulations in Variations 1 and 3 to more closely resemble the sound that would have been created by the organ. The addition of these slurs improves the fluidity of the melodic line and assists the retention of smooth phrases that are closer to the original intention of Ives when he composed the work in 1891.
When teaching this piece, several key musical elements can be highlighted:
1. The student can be introduced to a genre of music that may be new for them via this arrangement of a standard work.
2. The student can become aware of the theme and variation technique in composition.
3. The student can experience changes in tonality with a firm footing in a well-known melody.
4. The student can experience meter changes as well as rhythmic alterations to the original melody.
5. The student can become aware of the compositional tools used by Ives as well as their relevance to music history and literature.
The piece is appropriate as a teaching piece with students at the upper-intermediate level and as a performance piece for students who are advanced.

- REVIEW: "Mr. Dorff's treatment of this composition is well done. The piano accompaniment and solo part blend well together. If an organist is available, try it with pipe organ. It works out great with that combination. I really like the fact that the piano accompaniment is transparent and not too busy.... Mr. Dorff did a good job in preserving the actual canon. The Canon would be a great study in phrasing and tone control, and if you were looking for music to play for a church service this would be a sure-fire selection. Mr. Dorff included good phrase and dynamic markings that help the performer. I think this arrangement will be enjoyable to performer and listener alike." - T.U.B.A. Journal (Madeson), Fall 1993.
