This selection of essays on historical performance practice of the Baroque era includes the key essays from recent scholarly research which, eventually, changed both the way performers approach Baroque music, and the way audiences listen to it. Topics covered include historical instruments, pitch, tuning, temperament, the nexus between technique and style, vibrato, the performance implications of musical scores, questions relating to rhythmic alteration and the musicological challenges to the ideology of the early music movement.
