Overview

About the Product

A concise anthology including a wide range of Baroque music.

Anthology for Music in the Baroque, part of the Western Music in Context series, is the ideal companion to Music in the Baroque. Twenty-six carefully chosen works—including a lute song by John Dowland, a cantata by Barbara Strozzi, and selections from J. S. Bach’s Art of Fugue—offer representative examples of genres and composers of the period. Commentaries following each score present a careful analysis of the music, and online links to purchase and download recordings make listening easier than ever.
