  Baroque Music.  

The greatest difference between music from the XVII and the XVIII with music from the XVI century is that starting in the XVII century composers had to be bilingual, as in using the modern style of harmony as well as the antique style of counterpoint.



From there music was separated in two great categories, the traditional or music from the church and the profane music grouping everything that was not ecclesiastical.



The modern style consists of church, chamber music and theatre.



The royal courts had the most extraordinary basis for music and art in general (sacred and profane) as in the period of Louis XIV.
