With all this talk of Handel and embellishments, I had to break out my great Kenneth Gilbert album of the Handel keyboard suites. I have a lot of harpsichord music, and this is without question in the top five or ten of my favorites.

G. F. Händel, "Les Grandes Suites Pour Clavecin"
Kenneth Gilbert, harpsichord
Harmonia Mundi HM 447 (2 LP)

The linked CD does not have all 8 suites, but the album does.
