Premier performance of Canon #46 “Palladium” with the wonderful Matthew McConnell on harpsichord.  A new exploration of the idea of vertical shifting counterpoint as first described by theorist and composer Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915).  Part 1 is an initial statement of the canon with imitation at the octave.  Part 2 is a reprise with the top voice transposed up a semitone while remaining consonant with the bass (imitation is now at the minor ninth).  Part 3 is a reprise with a shifting interval of imitation.
