    Right now at Amazon, the Bach Guild has a 14 hour set of Baroque music as MP3 downloads for $1.99. Lots of obscure composers and works, not just the usual suspects. It's a great no risk way to sample a lot of stuff and see if you like it.

    Search "Big Baroque Box" MP3

    I have scanned these posts only quickly, but if you are partial to H's Op. 3 & 6, you are bound to enjoy Telemann's Overtures - delightful ear candy in every way - bar "depth" perhaps.

    Telemann and Vivaldi for chamber-orchestral works.

    I'm not very familiar with choral works of that Era but I suppose Heinrich Schütz works are very good and Haydn's works are better than all Baroque composers

    I would recommend Handels Israel in Egypt. I think it was his first oratorio and a failure at the time. It is full of greeat chorus's and some of Handels most descriptive music.
