Baroque Music Assignment #2
Due May 31
You are to choose a CD (or set of CDs) from the WSU Media Materials
Service (MMS) and write a brief comment on it. The initial titles given
below in English are to help you choose your selection, but in some
cases the titles in parentheses afterward are the titles as listed in
the WSU Library catalogue in foreign languages.
First, click on the CDM number of the recording your are interested from
the list below. This will connect you with its entry in Griffin, the WSU
library catalogue. Look under "STATUS" to see whether or not the disc is
checked out. If it says "ON SHELF," you're in luck; but if not, try
another disc. Remember that when you are in Griffin, you can always get
back to this page by clicking your "Back" button.
If you have a slow connection, you can also try using Griffin via
Telnet. Here are some instructions.
Second, To check out CD's from Washington State University Media
Materials Services, choose what you want below and then contact Extended
Degree Library Services at 1-800-435-5832 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The CD's will be mailed to
you first class and must be returned within two weeks to avoid overdue
fines. You can check out up to three discs or disc sets (multiple discs
with the same CDM number together in a box); but please avoid checking
out a lot from this list during the same period of time that everyone
else will be working on it.
Then read the liner notes that come with the CD and listen to the music.
Your assignment is to describe one or two things that are described in
the notes and that you can hear in the music. You need not use technical
terms, and you must not copy the notes; just tell in your own words what
you think you hear that the notes of have described. If the notes don't
help you, try to describe some feature of the music that you can hear
without their help. Then add your own personal reaction to the music.
This assignment is to be 50-100 words long (longer if you wish).

button in the upper right.
- Under "MATERIAL type" pull down the menu
so that it changes from "ANY" to "SOUND RECORD."
- Click on the big button at the bottom which reads "Limit/sort items
