Encyclopaedia Britannica

Encyclopaedia Britannica is so much more than an Encyclopaedia; it's a database, pulling in media and websites from around the internet to supplement the encylopaedia articles.

Search here for background and biographical information. Use broad and narriow search terms rather than questions or phrases. Encylopaedias work well with key words.

Oxford Music Online is a database of three resources:

Grove Music Online - Wide ranging database of information including lengthy, detailed entries of historical and biographical information.

The Oxford Dictionary of Music - Included in this impressive work are entries on composers, performers, conductors, musical terms and forms, instruments, works, venues, and a host of other topics.

The Oxford Companion to Music - More than 8,000 articles sweep across an extraordinary range of subjects: composers, performers, conductors, individual works, instruments and notation, forms and genres. 

Their subject page on baroque music will be especially useful.
