Tonal harmony

This was posted in the General Forum by mistake. I am re-posting it here, where, hopefully, it may draw some interest and a perhaps a response or two.

A happy new year to everyone. I have a question about the evolution of harmony. Between Monteverdi and Bach/Handel there was a change from (what I think of as) modal to tonal harmony, with the new emphasis on the third, a fuller contrast between tonic and dominant, and the use of the subdominant chord. When and with which composers did these developments come about? Thanks.
