    Default Game: The Best of the "Sacred Cow" Works (Qualifying Round Eleven of Twelve)

    It's time for Round Eleven of our favorite sacred cow works. For the 240 works that we collected in the selection round, I have broken the total down into 12 rounds, each round having 20 works. For each round, the 5 works having the highest scores will advance to the Semi-Finals.

    Rules of Engagement:

    1. You may vote once daily.

    2. When you vote, you will have 10 points to distribute as you wish except that no work may receive more than 6 points.

    3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in effect. With the first sacred cow to garner 50 points, the 8 having the lowest scores will be eliminated from the game; this number could rise if there are ties toward the bottom of the board.

    4. Round Eleven ends with the first sacred cow to reach 100 points.

    Let's Vote:

    Bach - Brandenburg Concertos - 0
    Beethoven - Piano Sonata no. 32, op. 111 - 0
