The Baroque Era 
"Baroque" is traditionally the term applied to a highly grand and decorative form of artistic expression in the 17th century. The term was first used to describe architecture and art, but was later applied to music. The period is often described as existing from the birth of opera and oratorio in the 1600s until the influence of classical style became widespread in the 1760s. Learning resources should be published in this area to further explain the Baroque era, style and composers who were influenced by the time.
The Baroque era hosted one of the most loved composers ever to have put pen to paper. Johann Sebastian Bach wrote many cantatas, several oratorios, and lots of other choral and instrumental music.
