Rise and Shine to you, as an early-evening sun shines through the room here. :)

Is it orchestral?

Does it have a part for a soloist (or soloists)?

Was it composed before 1st Jan 1801? If so, after 1750?

I had to go with # 5, as I know it's your favorite Mendelssohn symphony. If I were a bold man, I would venture a guess that you included a movement from this symphony into your Top 10 list. :D

Elementary my dear Watson.... :wink:

but Mendelssohn 5th wound up as 11th on my list... that's why I asked about multiple lists...


BTW - the next time I win (am I being confident?) a 30Q
I will pick a work that is so obscure.... :rofl:

How about Palestrina Motets? :wink:

Yes, that should be fine. :D It's been a LONG time since we ventured into any of the pre-Baroque eras. In fact, we've done it only once.
