Baroque Music Hunt - Assignment Due 10/28/2010

What is the essence of baroque music? Baroque music expresses order, the fundamental order of the universe. Yet it is always lively and tuneful. Music reflects the mood of the times, then as now as always.

Click here to experience www.baroquemusic.org - a great resource of Baroque composers, compositions, and history!

Use the web-site listed above to research a Baroque era composer NOT J.S. Bach or A. Vivaldi.  Once you find one you like - Embed a video of a performance/recording of one of their works onto your blog. 

Write a brief Bio of your composer.  (Please do NOT copy and Paste - that would be plagiarism~) 
Did you enjoy the piece of music you embedded?  Why?  Is there anything special worth noting about your composer?

Due: Thursday 10/28/2010
