    I have just published a new article on my website, entitled, “Borrowing for Contrast, I: Schütz, Bach, and Mozart,” at http://www.channanwillner.com/online.htm. The first of a two-part set, the article investigates how composers use borrowings from different sources (or different borrowings from the same source) to generate contrast, and what the resulting contrast may imply. The examples comprise J. S. Bach’s D minor English Suite, borrowed from a Symphonia Sacra by Schütz, and Mozart’s C minor keyboard Concerto, borrowed from the same passages that Bcah borrowed from Schütz, and from a symphony by J. C. Bach (the latter from a 1997 article by Ellwood Derr).
