This work begins with the innovations of Monteverdi and developments in Northern Italy. By the end of the period under discussion the Baroque spirit is flourishing north of the Alps, at the courts in Paris, Vienna, London and the German states. Spain and Portugal also made distinctive contributions to the culture of the Baroque. Part of the "Man and Music" series, this book surveys music in its broadest social, political and cultural context.
