Thank you for your understanding

It is pointless to try to confine a school of thought or a particular aesthetic within specific national borders. From the Renaissance onwards, and during the Baroque period in particular, composers and musicians drew on repertoire from across Europe. German counterpoint, and French and Italian fantasy meld in sacred and profane works. The layman can fall in love with a tune by Purcell, just as the connoisseur can appreciate his use of an erudite musical formula. Many 20th century composers, following in the footsteps of British composers Britten and Tippett, distanced themselves from systems of thought in order to develop their own musical idiom, drawing on the remote past as well as on more modern compositional techniques.
