the baroque era coincided with the widespread acceptance of protestantism in western europe.the protest churches handled music much differently than the catholic church.the catholic church kept everything in latin.a hallmark of protestant worship was putting everything,including music, in the language that the worshippers actually spoke.some protestant churches were fine with some polyphony and elaborate music as long as there were parts that the entire congregation could sing.other churches only allowed very simple tunes with no extra flourishes.still others(like the churches headed by ulrich zwingli) banned all music from worship,period..
so given all these options, which do you think is best?
