Just received an advance copy of this January release - excellent, finally the optimal repertoire and playing style for an original Taskin harpsichord. 

Looks interesting ....

Oh, I bet that does sound good. And I love that music too. :) 

Not having that particular recording, I'm going to give this Kubelik / Bavarian RSO version a spin:

Hard to choose between both recordings .... probably the Czech Philharmonic woodwind players are advantageous ....

Surely it’s clinched by the cover art on the Supraphon vinyl of ‘The Water Goblin’ ;)

https://www.brilliantclassics.com/articles/p/pachelbel-complete-keyboard-music/

Stella is a hard worker: After recording the complete keyboard works of Buxtehude, Böhm, Walther, Reincken, and Froberger he now delivers the complete Pachelbel keyboard works on 13 CDs and passes CPO's recording project, which so far produced seven CDs in two volumes, in one sweep. He uses a copy of a Ruckers harpsichord and a modern organ built after German 17th century models. His choice of tempos and registration are convincing, he always appreciates and loves the music he plays. 

This volume will help to place Pachelbel in the right position between Southern and Northern German keyboard schools - he was born in Nuremberg in 1653 and had studied with Kerll, among others, who had been with Frescobaldi in Rome - when he took organist's post in Eisennach and Erfurt he made contact with the Bach family. Heb brought some Italian sweetness to Northern music. 

With his colleague Stefano Molardi covering the organ works of Johann Sebastian, Johann Michael, and Johann Christoph Bach, and Johann Kuhnau, Brilliant Classics gives us a great survey of German keyboard music from the 17th and 18th centuries.
