Unformatted text preview: MUS 300‐005 Fall, 2010 Music Appreciation Online Instructions for completing Part III Part III covers the Baroque period (1600‐1750). This period in Western history was extraordinary. The Reformation had occurred only a few decades prior to the Baroque period, and we see the impact of the Reformation through the innovations in church music developed by composers such as J.S. Bach, who was Lutheran. Moreover, this period was characterized by great innovations in science and philosophy (the era of rationalism), as well as by the rise of absolute monarchs such as Louis XIV of France. Countries such as Germany emerged intellectually and culturally for the first time. The genre of opera, which is still alive and well today, was invented around 1600. Instrumental music really took off, due to a number of factors, and by the end of the Baroque period, was co‐equal in importance with vocal music. Order for studying: 1.
