7. Urban Baroque El barroco de Indias , the Baroque of the Indies, and it has been characterized as the apogee of cultural originality in colonial Spanish America. Its distinctive feature is the convergence of three cultures—the immigrant European, the indigenous American, and the transplanted African—and it embraces the seventeenth and a portion of the eighteenth centuries.

6. The modern early-music revival The study of older music is characteristic of newer times. Why this should be so is a study more about modern culture than about music itself. Do we turn to the past because we prefer it to the present, like those in the Middle Ages who were convinced that the world was gradually deteriorating? Do we prefer music that seems somehow accessible to us, in that it is music that we ourselves might be able to play or sing, if we only worked at it a bit?

8. Baroque plenitude Fábula de Polifemo y Galatea (Fable of Polyphemus and Galatea) and Soledades ( Solitudes ) in 1612 and 1613, respectively, creating a poetic revolution that extended and transformed the Renaissance tendencies and traditions exemplified in the work of the Castilian poet Garcilaso de la Vega. With Góngora, the metaphor went wild, erudite words or expressions ( cultismos )—often neologisms or uncommon, esoteric terms—bifurcated and multiplied, and mythical themes and motifs exploded.
