Description - Performing Baroque Music by Mary Cyr

"Performing Baroque Music" is a practical guide to the important issues that arise when one performs baroque music. Listeners, performers, students and teachers will find here, carefully explained and thoroughly documented, the analytical tools they need to understand and interpret musical evidence from the baroque era. Scores for eleven works, many reproduced in facsimile to illustrate the conventions of 17th and 18th century notation, are included or close study. Readers will find new material on continuo playing, as well as extensive treatment of singing and French music. The book is also a concise guide to reference materials in the field of baroque performance practice with extensive annotated bibliographies of modern and baroque sources that guide the reader toward further study. Mary Cyr's work contributes to our understanding of the creation of baroque sound and to the shared goal of effective and ejoyable performance.
