    Appalachian Spring - Copland
    Symphony 5 - Shostakovich

    .....harder than I thought to narrow down apparently
    Those are curious choices. Both the Brandenburg Concertos and most of Mozart's operas were "light" works the composers didn't think very important, they wrote them quickly for the money.

    Yeah, that's not a description of "Le Nozze di Figaro"

    You took the more serious sacred choral path; Olias took a different road. However, you both selected famous works that many fans of the two composers would consider among their favorites. It's all good.

    Never said it was bad, just curious. But I think the composers themselves would have disagreed.

    It doesn't make much difference whether they would agree or not. Both works need to stand on their own.

    Renaissance : Antoine Brumel "Earthquake" mass
    Baroque: Jan Dismas Zelenka Miserere
    Classical: Mozart Ave verum or Clarinet concerto or any of horn concertos
    Romantic: Schubert The Great symphony or Sonata D960
    Late romantic: Bruckner any symphony or Strauss 4 last songs, I think of them as still representing aesthetic of late Romanticism, not as something modern
    20th century/ modern: Poulenc Stabat mater

    I'd suggest to do the same but to divide works : chamber, vocal ( subdivisions : solo, opera, choir), orchestral and solo - one instrument.
