Baroque Music

This project will result in the publication of a book, entitled Baroque Music, which will be the first synthesis of the history of music during the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. The book incorporates the present generation’s most important new findings and approaches, including the social and political history of music during that period, the history of performance practice, contemporaneous music theory and criticism, the insights provided by modern critical theory, the contributions of women, and Western music in New World colonies.
