"With its unparalleled breadth and level of detail, Baroque Music is an ideal text for courses in music history and literature. Professor Hill approaches his subject from several perspectives: as a social historian, cultural anthropologist, musicologist, and storyteller. His descriptions of the cultural, social, and political forces shaping this dynamic period give readers an essential context for the musical innovations that were being made."--Jacket." ;
