Three learning points:

1. RH play with knuckle joint and avoid upward jerking movement from the wrist.
2. Fugue subject: Articulation to create an accent on the strong beat. Harpsichord has no ability to play with accent, the only way is through articulations
3. Do not let the quicker / shorter notes overshadow the longer notes as the ear able to pick up quick notes more than the longer notes.

Reference to consider for articulation on the Fugue subject: Tilman Hoppstock from Prim Editions. Bach’s Lute work from guitarist perspective. Vol 2 BWV 998 – 1000

Many thanks Bill for the great lesson. I’ll continue to work on it.
