Motivated partially (I will confess) by grief and rage over the results posted just above, I've created a reference thread for Gabrieli's In Ecclesiis, and therefore I get to move it up from the 72nd to the 64th tier.

Anyone who wishes can do the same for their own favorites as explained in the OP of this thread.
Interesting! I may actually do so for Dvorak's 5th symphony, which I think should not be languishing in the 70th tier. It is my favorite Dvorak symphony, and is an absolute masterpiece. Will do so when I have a chance (meaning not tonight). If I am also allowed to do that also for another work, then I think Tchaikovsky's 2nd symphony ('Ukrainian') also deserves a major promotion. Probably my second most favorite symphony by him (after his 4th).

So... it seems to me that the project is running out of steam to some extent. We still have participation in the voting threads, but not nearly as much in the low tiers, where most of the works are. We're not adding works at the same clip either.

I'm wondering if anyone has any particularly provocative ways to move us forwards. I'm not sure what the future holds, but the radical transformation of talkclassical has inspired me to wonder about ways to transform our list of recommendations.

I don`t have any bright ideas I`m afraid. All I can do is to offer more works for the list.

Birtwistle: Clarinet Quintet [1980]
Orrego-Salas: Sextet for Clarinet, Piano and String Quartet, op. 38 [1955]
Reynolds: Whispers Out of Time [1988]

In addition to the suggestions I made previously,

I think the polls for each tier could be open for a longer time period. Unless you already know most of the works in a tier it takes a lot of time to fully absorb and vote on a long list of works. I think it's completely OK to have lots of polls open at the same time. I only managed to vote on some tiers because I anticipated they would come up before they were announced!

The new system where people are voting up two works every few days works fine in the short term, but in the long term I don't think it will lead to a stable system. To achieve that I think you need some kind of comparative voting system: ranking polls, binary polls or voting works both up and down. Also, for me personally the opportunity to promote any work from a list of 6000 is almost too hard to decide - I would find it easier to participate when given a more limited choice.
