Does baroque music have polyphony or homophony?

Monophonic means one instrument playing a single melodic pattern. Therefore, any solo piece would be monophonic. However, if there is an accompaniment, the texture would be homophonic or heterophonic. This means all the parts move together (homophony) or two instruments play the same melodic pattern but in harmony (heterophony). Most classical era music was melody dominated homophony, because most commonly a violin/violins would play the melody, and it would be accompanied by double basses, cellos and various other woodwind instruments.
