A waltz across the turf of time

Serendipity is the most beautiful path which leads to things "you didn't know that you didn't know".I just ran across a collection on 8tracks which is "History of Music". It would be an amazing way to take a walk across centuries of music.

From 15th century Celtic music to the Baroque period, the one transformation which really stands out for me is the rise in collaborative music. From dominance of one musical instrument such as the fiddle, music evolved into symphonies where a crowd created a rhythm. It is in a way in line with what was happening in that era, from reverence to one man mastery over a trade, we were progressing towards Industries.
