Who was Theodore Charles Pachelbel?
Theodore Pachelbel was the 46-year-old son of Johann Pachelbel. He'd shown up in Boston six years before. We all know the elder Pachelbel for his famous canon.
Johann Pachelbel wrote a lot of nice music that we don't often get to hear. He was a close friend to the Bach family, godfather to one of Bach's sisters, and music teacher to a brother. So Theodore, the youngest Pachelbel son, had known Bach, who was only five years his senior.
