Early Music is music from the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, and early Classical periods of Western music. From Gregorian chant to the music of Bach and Mozart, the repertory spans a millennium, from roughly 800-1800. Early music specialists aim to recreate the sound-worlds of earlier times through the use of period instruments and techniques.
