Ten Musical Pieces from Baroque to Romantic

The high school students in our home school co-op just read a lesson from the Notgrass World History Curriculum about music history.   Here is a selection of 10 pieces from the composers featured in the chapter.  I haven't personally listened to all of these.  Some of them are full-length, and the students might want to just listen to several minutes.  I hope they will be inspired to look up more pieces for these composers and for other composers in these musical periods.  I will try to compile a list of 20th century links soon.
For more information, be sure to visit these classical music sites:





  1. There is a great big list of high-quality classical music downloads here:

    I hope you find it useful!

  2. Now listening to a beautiful Bach piece from that link!
