This is a very short, but still useful, history of Baroque music. The only puzzle is the strange choice of musical examples (less than stellar examples of a composer's work), and their unnecessarily length (5-10 minutes, including many repeats, when 1-2 minutes would be more helpful).

The snippets and examples of music are great recordings, but the text, they are held in skims the surface so quickly that you really can't absorb the context. Had a vague inkling of what the Baroque Music movement was about before hand. Thought I would get a better understanding of it's history and be able to put the composers more into context of the period. Did not really learn anything. Discovered there was a downloadable PDF file listing the musical selections and who composed them after I had finished. Might have to give it a second listen following that outline.
