    Baroque Music As You Like It.

    A thread to put any chance finds on YouTube, or any interesting bits of information on Baroque Music in General.

    I love Baroque Music, and I am lucky enough to have as my violin teacher a professional HIP (Historically Informed Performance) violist and violinist, who performs all over the UK & sometimes further afield with some well-known baroque ensembles.
    I've had lessons with him now for nearly seven years & it's been an exciting journey.

    But any baroque music you find doesn't need to be HIP as long as you like it.

    I'll start with this seasonal 'Baroque Christmas' selection -

    Monteverdi is the composer whom most people think of as the first baroque composer, although others point to his 'renaissance' features. In truth, he stands on the cusp of Renaissance/ Baroque Music.

    Here's a short introduction in video.

    Another early baroque composer was Jacopo Peri, and here is a beautiful song of his, Tu dormi, e 'l dolce sonno, sung by Ellen Hargis, soprano.

    The music is fab, the musicians look great, as do the dancers - though I prefer a more lively dancing style.
