This is the 56th in a series of games based on a common theme. It could be genre, instrumentation, key signature, time period, style, country, groupings such as Scriabin's Piano Sonatas, etc.

Here's how it works:

1. First voter selects the common theme and a work that fits reasonably into the theme.
2. Second voter also selects a work that fits into the common theme.
3. We keep submitting works until we have collected 20 of them.
4. The game begins.

Selection Rules:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have one selection to make.

3. Selections end when we have collected 20 entries.

4. The maximum number of selections per composer is two.

The next voter will pick the common theme and first selection of the twenty.

I am definitely sitting this one out. My listening usually does not extend back earlier than Henry Purcell, with the rare exception of Hildegard von Bingen, so I am definitely heading the peanut gallery in this game.

As the head of the peanut gallery, I wonder if the criteria are being defined too narrowly if you disallow multiple compositions by the same composer? Will be watching with interest.

I wonder if I will have to eat my words. A quick web search yields more names than I would have guessed, although I don't recognize most of them, although I am the first to admit that the Baroque is not my usual musical stomping grounds.

So do something that you usually don't do. There are already 3 works on the list, and they are easily worth a listen (I'm partial to the Dowland).
