Good text, but no music,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Discover Music of the Baroque Era (Kindle Edition)
The original format is a 2-CD set with an accompanying book. The Kindle version has the text of the book, but no music.
The text itself is a good concise introduction to Baroque music, with the equivalent of about 1 to 5 pages about each of the major composers. Well written in a very clear style. My only reservation about the text is the statement that Bach's 48 preludes and fugues were written "to promote ... equal temperament, in which for the first time the octave would be divided into 12 equal semitones." It was unusual but not new in Bach's day, and most scholars now believe that Bach tuned to a different system.
