Please respond to both of the following subjects, using the class text and sources under the Explore heading as the basis of your MAIN POST response (reminder—be sure also to do TWO GOOD REPLY POSTS to classmates):

  • SUBJECT ONE: Listen to one composition that demonstrates the qualities of the Baroque musical style. It may be from the Websites below (links) or from this week’s Music Folder. Identify your choice, and describe it by relating key terms from the textbook to your selection. Explain what you like or admire about the work. Compare it to a modern soundtrack or song that evokes a similar mood.
  • SUBJECT TWO: Select one Baroque style painting from the pages or websites at the links given below. Try to select ones that no other student has selected. Identify each as to artist, date, and title or description. From the summaries of the Baroque style’s features in our class text, identify specific key aspects of that painting that fit the Baroque style. Explain why you selected each and what you like or dislike about it. Compare this style to a modern film, type of film, or to a modern situation.
