The works on the 117th (until recently the 116th) tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works are currently the 35th percentile, meaning that we've recommended 65% of the 6473 works on our list more strongly than them. But we're going to pick some to recommend a little more or less strongly:

When we began, this tier had 274 works, so I divided it into 4 parts of 55 works each and a fifth part of 54 works. From each part, we're moving the 15 work(s) that get the absolute most votes all the way up to the 114th tier, and the next 20 of them up to the 115th tier, while the work(s) that get the absolute fewest votes will be demoted to the 117th tier.

All the works will be able to move again when we vote on the tiers they land on.

Each participant gets:

+1 votes: as many as you want
+2 votes: up to eight -- but you must have more +1 votes than +2 votes
+3 votes: up to seven -- but you must have more +2 votes than +3 votes
+4 votes: up to six -- but you must have more +3 votes than +4 votes
+5 votes: up to five -- but you must have more +4 votes than +5 votes
+6 votes: up to four -- but you must have more +5 votes than +6 votes
+7 votes: up to three -- but you must have more +6 votes than +7 votes

Voting on this thread will close 14 days from the timestamp of this post, though if I'm late to close it you can still vote until I announce that it's closed.

I will tally the votes on a Google sheet.

Have fun! Also, please be considerate! Someone, hopefully, will be influenced by our selections!
