    I'd be grateful if in the next few days, contributors would say whether they consider O'Carolan to be a classical composer. I'm not quite there yet but he is on the list that I am currently working my way through. I'm keen on him.

    I believe that I haven't with any post mentioned any composer more than once. However, expect more variation here including a second and/or third selection from composers already mentioned, again not immediately but very soon.

    I'm not quite sure how many I've done so far. It's probably about 50 which is no doubt a drop in the ocean compared with people who have been contributing longer than me. But I am pleased to have got quite a lot of new folk in and built for those with very few entries as well as coming up with ones for the already well represented.

    I don't have an opinion on O'Carolan but the first line of the little blurb introducing the list of works reads, "This is a prioritized list of classical music (inclusively defined) recommendations...." I originally put that in to protect progressive composers.
