A companion volume to David Schulenberg's textbook, Music of the Baroque, Third Edition, this anthology features frequently studied works by such celebrated Baroque composers as Bach, Handel, and Monteverdi together with compositions by lesser-known composers like Elizabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre. Each score is accompanied by commentaries on performance practice and other vital matters. All scores and commentaries have been checked and updated for the third edition of Music of the Baroque: An Anthology of Scores, which includes new editions of compositions by Cavalli, Scarlatti, Charpentier, Carissimi, and Rameau. Offering an unparalleled portrait of European music from 1600 through 1750, the collection is an ideal instructional package for courses in the history of Baroque music.
