    Default the 15th tier

    We're picking some works to move up from the 15th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works.

    We'll move the top 10 works up to the 14th tier, so each participant gets gets as many +1 votes as you want, and if you use at least TWO, you can have up to TWO +2 votes, and if you use them both, you can have up to TWO +3 votes, and if you use them both, you can have up to TWO +4 votes, and finally if you use them both, you can have up to TWO +5 votes. You don't have to put all your votes in a single post.

    Voting on this thread will be open 5 days.

    I will tally the votes on a Google sheet.

    Have fun! Also, please be considerate! Someone, hopefully, will be influenced by our selections!

    Here are the eligible works for this thread:
