Sectional motet forms (repetition and contrast).

Zatlin also states that the French used the term "baroque" as "a pejorative way of distinguishing Spanish artistic style from their own Neo-classicism" (1994, 25). It was both simplistic and melodramatic in its form, glorifying the church and monarchy.
