This book defines Baroque music simply and explains how it began, developed and influenced later musicians, with chapters on major genres and a survey of the lives and music of the two leading composers of the late Baroque, Bach and Handel.

This book suggests listening, viewing and further reading material to complement the main topics within the book, and is an ideal resource for those wanting to explore the many aspects of Baroque music.

This second edition has been fully revised and updated, with expanded sections on the major genres and works of the Baroque era.

Written to provide a solid foundation for pupils of all levels who are studying Baroque music, Baroque Music in Focus would also be useful for any readers with an interest in the topic.

Hugh Benham read Music and English at Southampton University, where he was awarded a Ph.D. for his study of the music of John Taverner. He is a chair of examiners for GCE Music, an in-service trainer, church organist, and writer, and formerly taught music in a sixth-form college.

Hugh has contributed to Music Teacher and Classroom Music magazines, and is the author of Baroque Music in Focus (Rhinegold, 2007). His other writing includes two books on English church music, including John Taverner: his Life and Music (Ashgate, 2003), articles on early music, contributions to The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians (2001) and Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, and a complete edition of Taverner for Early English Church Music.

Rating Review
Customer Rating Well, as the author of this book, I'm biased, but I still think it should provide a very helpful introduction to the wonderful world of Baroque music for students at GCSE and A level, and a useful summary of important developments for degree students. Anyone else interested in widening their knowledge, experience and enjoyment of music should find it worth reading - and as the English language is widely spoken and read I hope that its readership will not be limited to the United Kingdom.
