Baroque Music

A guide to library resources for researching and performing Baroque music.

How to use this guide

Use the menu bars on the left to find resources for researching and performing music of the Baroque period (ca. 1600-1750).  For example, click the "Articles" bar to see a list of journals and databases for finding articles about Baroque music.

For a more general guide to music resources in the library, start with the main Music Research Guide.
