The creation of Baroque music was driven by the patron — the church and the wealthy.

Music was a display of wealth, talent and all things fancy. New musical forms rose in popularity, and composers of the time produced hundreds of compositions for their patrons.

One of these composers was Barbara Strozzi, who worked in Rome and published many works of music for female singers.
