Since classical antiquity and in the various denominations -Jews, Catholics and Protestants- there has been a tradition of the theoretical study of proportions applied to music. However, we will focus on the aspects that justify this use in the area of the Lutheran Baroque and we will try to extrapolate it to the area of the Hispanic Baroque. To achieve the objective of the work, the argumentation regarding the Lutheran world will be presented and the focus will be on thinkers and theorists who have dealt with the subject in question. It will be illustrated with some examples that show the use of proportions. Finally, one will wonder if in the Spanish counter-reformist Baroque there was also an awareness of musical proportion and its application.
