Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel (we use this spelling in
honor of Handel's being a naturalized British subject in his maturity) both
made use of a synthesis of the French and the Italian styles—in fact, this
synthesis is a characteristic of the Germans of the baroque era. Added to the
native German musical language's innate richness of harmony and counterpoint,
it literally defines the styles of these two giants of the late baroque.
