So, I mentioned in my last post that I'd written my thesis (well, technically it was a 'research paper', but basically a short thesis) on rhetoric and French baroque music. Then I thought, why don't I let everyone have a look? So, here it is!
Keep in mind, this was a university paper, so it was necessarily limited in scope, and of course there will be some holes in my research and so forth. I acknowledge that it is not perfect! But it is interesting, and if you're into this sort of stuff, hopefully you'll learn something.
And of course, the bibliography is a good spot to look for some sources on French baroque music!
