This paper discusses the Baroque period of 1600 - 1750. It discusses the role that patronage played in the lives of musicians and the repertoire that was composed or performed by them. It then examines three case studies in terms of their most significant musicians-in-residence, their socio-cultural environment, opportunities for performance and composition and their locally preferred musical styles.
