    I've just finished a ranking considering the order of appearances of the composers in the main list of this project in each tier until the 30th. It used the following algorithm (if I didn't commit any mistakes ):

    1) Start at tier 1 and stop at tier 30;
    2) If there's no composer in the tier, move to the next;
    3) If there's one composer in the tier, place him in the next position of the ranking, starting at 1;
    4) If there's more then one composer in the tier, place the one with more works in it in the next position of the ranking; if there's a tie, verify in the next tiers which of the tied composers appears first and more and move him to the ranking; keep this procedure while it's needed (the priority is for the composer who appeared first; if composer X has 1 work in, say, tier 4 and none in the next or in the previous tiers and composer Y has 50 works at tier 5 and none in the previous, composer X is in a better position than composer Y in the ranking).

    Considering this, here is the list:

    1. Bach;
    2. Beethoven;

    74. Chausson;
    75. Abrahamsen;
    76. Zemlinsky;

    101. Dutilleux;
    102. Falla;
    103. Grofé.

    ------------------

    I've made this list for fun, and don't claim that my method has any value. The exercise was interesting for me: I've never heard about the composers Magnard, Dohnányi, Chausson, Canteloube, Szymanowski, Bloch, Honegger, Haas, Vasks, Martinů, Beach and Grofé before and I'm now curious about their compositions.

    Well, they're all composers very well worth exploring!
