    What baroque music did you listen to today...

    I'll begin by saying that as a relatively newcomer to baroque music I have a limited knowledge as well as a limited library of this music. I am particularly drawn to instrumental music. I thought this thread would be helpful for me as well as other newcomers.
    Some composers who I like very much:
    F. Geminiani
    W. Boyce
    H. Purcell
    G. Telemann
    JS. Bach
    D. Scarlatti
    G. Torelli
    C. Avison
    GF Handel
    There are many more...

    Today I have listened to William Boyce radio which is a station on Pandora radio. When you make a station on Pandora it plays music of a similar style which gives me the opportunity to learn more.
    I wish You Peace

    "Missa Salisburgensis" by Biber.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    The Indes Gallante youtube you posted is taken a bit fast for my liking, I prefer the version by Les arts Florissant but couldn't find the same piece on youtube only other pieces from the same work which would not be a fair comparison.

    Try this harpsichord Gavotte and variations by Rameau

    I've posted this library link before, but probably worth mentioning again

    http://www.baroquemusiclibrary.com/index.html

    MP3 downloads for $5.95 per CD. Some sample clips available.
    Cheers MIKE.

    For some scores of most of the composers you list try

    http://icking-music-archive.org/ByComposer.php

    A lot of Boyce works, not much for Geminiani, loads for Purcell, Telemann & Bach,

    Scores available in PDF format also some for use in various Notation software, Finalé, Sibelius, Noteworthy etc, also some MIDI, MusicXML and other formats.

    If you like Boyce also look at Croft and John Stanley.
    Cheers MIKE.

    WTC!

    More specifically the C#Minor fugue in the first volume. This is a stunningly beautiful piece of music. www2.nau.edu/tas3/wtc.html

    It all sounds much better when played on period instruments IMO
    I don’t want a signature any more
