    Default Game (semifinal 3/3): Lesser-known song cycles

    Welcome to the semi-finals of the lesser-known song cycles game (a suggestion by Allegro con Brio).

    We nominated 180 works, which were run in fifteen preliminary rounds to get to 45. These are now run in three semi-finals and one final.

    Voting Rules:

    1. You may vote once daily (your calendar day).

    2. To vote, please:
    - copy/paste the previous post
    - remove the (+x) by the previous poster
    - add your votes and include your own (+x) after them
    - after posting, please check whether someone else has posted just before you
    - if so, adjust your post accordingly
    - please do not bold the compositions you vote for, please do not use different colours
    - if you want, you can bold the composition reaching the finish line (60)
    - please do not delete the reminder statement about halfway the compositions list

    3. When you vote, you will have 10 upward points to use as you wish except that no work may receive more than 3 points.

    4. The Half-Time Adjustment is not in effect.

    5. The round ends with the first composition to collect 60 points.

    At the end of the round, the top five compositions will move to the final. If necessary, I will apply a tiebreaker (the last time there was a difference between compositions ending on equal points).

    The full list of the 15 preliminary rounds can be found here.
    The full list of the 3 semi-finals can be found here.

    Qualified for the final:

    Aho - Chinese Songs
    Butterworth - Six Songs from A Shropshire Lad
    Debussy - Chansons de Bilitis
    Finzi - Let Us Garlands Bring
    Golijov - Ayre
    Nystroem - Sanger vid havet (Songs at the Sea)
    Schumann - Myrthen, op. 25
    Silvestrov - Silent Songs
    Stanford - Songs of the Fleet
    Vaughan Williams - Songs of Travel
    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.
