Wikipedia on Baroque music
The term Baroque music is used to designate the style of music composed during a period that spans from 1600 to 1760.

J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel are often considered its culminating figures.
Some say the word baroque derives from the ancient Portuguese noun "barroco" which is the name for a pearl that is not round but of unpredictable and elaborate shape!

Hence, in informal usage, the word baroque can simply mean that something is "elaborate", with many details, without reference to the Baroque styles of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

A compilation of baroque music for your listening pleasure:
