An appeal to those voting down Biber :

"The Rosary Sonatas (also known as the Mystery Sonatas or Copper-Engraving Sonatas) by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber are a collection of 15 short sonatas for violin and continuo with a closing passacaglia for solo violin that are relevant to the Christian Rosary devotion practice and possibly to the Feast of the Guardian Angels....

"The following Passacaglia in G minor uses a bass pattern which is the same as that of the first line of a hymn to the Guardian Angel (Holman 2000). It is considered the most 'outstanding work of its type before the Bach Chaconne' (Dann 2011)."

Dvorak's 8th symphony gone too soon !
I don't expect everyone to like it , however I hope those unsure of its qualities have heard idiomatic or sympathetic performances ,
such as Kubelik/BPO on Deutsche Grammophon at least ,
as distinct from Cycle Completer conductors who may not like it.

I don't know if any conductors can perform the 7th and 8th equally well ,
though there are some I have yet to hear.

Actually , I have nothing against the 7th symph , but rules here specify 2 minus votes to participate ,
so I will have to allocate preferences.

I have not heard every composition in the list , but of those I have heard there are none I seriously dislike !
There are several I am looking forward to hearing , given the comments by participants of the Nominations round.

I think the Nominations closed too soon - we should have left the threshold open longer for at least 50 works ,
as too many good ones remained unseconded as too little time to get back to them !!

This computer is behaving peculiarly !
First it truncated my initial post , and next it added a second post instead of editing the original ...
so I have deleted the repeat -{ but not from the symphony ...}.

chris, i was hoping there would be a bigger list, as well. but perhaps it was shorter to avoid a dvorak-fest. bummer that my favorites symphonies of his (3 & 4) did not get seconded. oh well.
