Pachelbel died in the first months of 1706 at the young age of 52. The young Bach, then on his way back from Lübeck, probably never met Pachelbel. Perhaps it is because he was already familiar with the works of Pachelbel, which was well known throughout central Germany, that he chose Buxtehude as his mentor. Many of Pachelbel's students in particular had actively transmitted his inimitable art of chorale variation, including Johann Christoph Bach who doubtless passed the knowledge on to his younger brother. Another important link in the chain is Johann Gottfried Walther, a contemporary and cousin of Bach who was his colleague in Weimar. Walther was born in Erfurt during Pachelbel's stay and studied with several students of the master, and then in Nuremberg with Pachelbel's son, which made him a worthy disciple of the master of St. Sebald.
