Welcome to the WORDLE composers game - inspired by the popular on-line five letter word word guessing game. Only composers whose family name consists of five uninterrupted letters could be elected - and with one work each. We startred with a playing field of 192, which was reduced to 48 in 12 preliminaries. Play continues with 3 semi-finals and one final. Selections and line-ups can be found here.

The rules:

1) you may vote once during your calendar day.
2) you have 10 points to distribute, but no composition may receive more than 4 points (deviating from the Bulldog games). Just copy/paste the latest board and add your votes.
3) there is no halfway elimination of compositions with low scores.
4) the round ends with the first composition to reach 80 points.
5) at the end of the round, the top five compositions will qualify for the final (in case of a tie, I'll use a tiebreaker: the last time there was a difference). In addition, the best #6 will qualify.
6) do not post negative remarks on any of these compositions, feel free to discuss them positively, and at any time you may post YouTube links to their works.

If there is anything unclear, just ask.


To the final:

Alwyn - Autumn Legend
Biber - Rosary Sonata No. 13 "Pentecost"
Falla - El amor brujo
Finzi - Clarinet Concerto
Grieg - Violin Sonata no. 3 in C minor
Haydn, Michael. - Missa pro defuncto Archiepiscopo Sigismondo
Henze - Violin Concerto No. 1
Leifs - Geysir
Ravel - Shéhérazade (song cycle)
Weill - Seven Deadly Sins

Candidate for best #6:

Perle - Transcendental Modulations - 52
