Description: This anthology is a study of European music spanning from the late sixteenth through the mid-eighteenth centuries. The volume can be used to accompany Music of the Baroque, or independently as a collection of study scores. Works by Lalande, Gaultier, Frescobaldi, Froberger, Rossi, Castello, Biber, Legrenzi, Torelli, Bach, La Guerre, Couperin, and Marini are included in this edition. Women composers and a number of "noncanonical" selections are presented within the anthology. The verbal texts of each vocal work along with translations when necessary are provided for the scores. Excerpts of coherent portions of works are given within the anthology, and the text volume presents a few briefer extracts in the form of musical examples. Pre- and post-Baroque selections provide transitions to music from other historical periods which illustrate the opening and closing chapters of the text volume. New pieces by Cavalli, Charpentier, La Guerre, Rameau, Scarlatti, and Carissimi are added to this edition. This is an anthology that contains a broad variety of compositions in an affordable format.
