Review Chapter 21, pp. 695-8, and listen at the links below. Then, identify a composition by Monteverdi or Vivaldi that demonstrates the qualities of the Baroque and explain your choice. Listen to selections from Monteverdi or Vivaldi at http://www.npr.org/2008/03/07/87950066/monteverdis-orfeo and http://www.npr.org/2011/07/18/104868631/vivaldi-a-man-for-all-seasons.

◦NOTE: The NPR link for the music for Monteverdi's Orfeo is no longer up. So visit the site for the narrative and explanation of the work, but try this link to hear the Earliest Opera still performed today. --I especially like that this performance places the drums and brass instruments in balconies, so that, as our textbook explains was a common strategy, audiences could experience a version of our "surround sound." Meanwhile, the string instruments are set before the conductor...and then all of a sudden the singers appear on the stage behind them --singing like angels. Later the dancers will arrive too.
◦(Consider running these performances as background while you read the textbook! But click back to see the performances every so often.)

•After reading Chapter 22 and exploring the Baroque style at the "SmartHistory" link below, describe a painting or sculpture that exemplifies the characteristics of the Baroque style and demonstrates the Science of Observation. Then, go to Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum Website and look up Judith Leyster and Jan Vermeer. Find a work by each that you like and that is not in Chapter 22. Discuss here why you enjoy those two selections.
