Our quiz two date will

The quiz two study guide is now up.
Here is the complete playlist for our Baroque unit.
Assignment #7: Meter Round Two
We are going to do one more round of meter homework before the quiz. It is due on our quiz day (class 13).
Our class notes also include more advice on strengthening your metric sense through practice and the diagrams for how to conduct.
Assignment #8: Quiz Two Preview
OK, all notes and blogs for the quiz are up, so we can do the quiz two preview. Once again this has real questions that may appear on your quiz. Due before Class 13 (quiz day).
The Baroque Dance Suite
J.S. Bach, Suite No. 3 for Solo Cello in C Major, V. Bourrées I & II
This is a movement from a Baroque Dance Suite by J. S. Bach. Here's an embedded video which illustrates how both the dances are in binary form.
(The piece is also danced by our friends from the Mark Morris Dance Group, and Yo-Yo Ma is the cellist.)
(As always with our embedded, non-youtube videos, be careful not to use up your cellphone data.)
Here is linkage to the original recording that made Yo-Yo Ma a household name:
Bonus: Free Sheet Music
Virtually all of the music from this class is actually available online as free, copyright-free sheet music. The best site for this sort of thing is called IMSLP.
Bonus: Handel's Water Music
You might also want to read what our book says about the Baroque Dance Suite. Craig Wright's choice for this is a movement from Handel's Water Music Suite.
Here is some linkage, in case you want to hear it. This is not the official book recording - it is a little faster, so things happen a little sooner than it says in the notes. Not a quiz piece.
