    Default the 19th tier - to Nov 20

    We're splitting the 19th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works.

    We'll move the top 5 works - fewer in the event of ties - up to the 17th tier, and we'll move the next 10 works (as near to 10 as possible in the event of ties) up to the new 18th tier.

    So each participant gets gets as many +1 votes as you want, and if you use at least FIVE, you can have up to FOUR +2 votes, and if you use them all, you can have up to THREE +3 votes, and if you use them all, you can have up to TWO +4 votes, and finally if you use them both, you can have ONE +5 vote.

    Voting on this thread will be open 7 days -- closing Nov 20, Korea time.

    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:
