Note from Mary Lou Roberts;
Thanks for the list.  There are a couple of areas that are borderline, that
might be confusing.  I think the L. Mozart Bouree is Baroque in style, both by
the name and the counterpoint.  Mozart's father would have been very on the
border of Baroque and Classical.  I don't hear anything classical in that piece.

The other is the Spanish Nationalistic composers are more early Contemporary
than Romantic.  I almost wish "Nationalistic" was a period of the early 20th
century..... For example, I would hear Calatayud Waltz (Contemporary) and
Leyenda (Romantic?)in the same category, if there had to be a category.  The
Waltz is neo-romantic, it doesn't sound contemporary at all.  The Texture in
Leyenda would lend itself to a Nationalistic/Impressionistic piece; more
contemporary than romantic.

It is really different to think of May Song as Baroque!  I have it in a German
song book, but never thought of what period it came from.

Thanks!
Mary Lou
