Pachelbel, harpsichord suites

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Posted here are 42 harpsichord suites — performed by Joseph Payne — of the German composer Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706). It has been my feeling for some time that Pachelbel should be a lot better known than he is — and not just known for one or two famous works (e.g., his Canon in D).

Joseph Payne (1937-2008) was a harpsichordist and organist known for his pioneering recordings of early keyboard music.

 

Also posted here, two Pachelbel favorites:

 

Canon and Gigue in D Major

 

Toccata in E Minor for Organ
