An early example of a harpsichord used in a pop single in combination with compositional elements from Baroque music dates from July, 1958. 18 It is an American doo-wop novelty single by the Jamies, a teenaged vocal quartet from Boston, released by Epic Records. 19 In “Summertime, Summertime,” a perennial end-of-school radio favorite, the Jamies use elements of Baroque compositional style—specifically, the chorus’ a capella imitative entrances, and the song’s melodic contours, particularly approaching cadences—in addition to harpsichord continuo for the verses. “Summertime, Summertime” is typical of 1960s Baroque pop in that the elements of Baroque music are used for novelty value.
