What set the baroque era apart from the Renaissance? (extra credit)
Instrumental music was increasingly important during the baroque era. It was used to appropriate the mood of the various settings and thus it was highly influential in the composition of the pieces. Continuity was expressed throughout its pieces as well, in the rhythm, melody and dynamics of the music. Baroque texture favored the homophonic style in the early baroque era, but eventually returned to favor the polyphonic texture in the later baroque era. The baseline was developed and played a prominent role in the baroque era. Chords became increasingly important during the Baroque era and therefore gave new prominence to the bass part.
