MOM!! Did you know that from 1550, the earliest part of the Baroque era, to the Galante era which bridged into the CLassical period in the last third of the 18th century, there were over EIGHT HUNDRED AND EIGHTY known Baroque composes? Didja?? You want a list of them all? All 880 of them breathed and sighed, peed and farted and learned music with ferocious attention. All of them yearned, dreamed, slept, waned and died. And how many of their names do you know? Maybe six? Eight? Huh? I have a list.
Just think, less than one per cent of the composers of this remarkable school.
Oh, alright. You twisted my arm!!
