Classical Competition Submissions

Sup fuckknuckles? I finally thought of an actually decent idea for a tourney. Basically the premise is this is a tourney, but for "classical" compositions. RULES SECTION: so as "classical" compositions aren't albums, it makes submissions a little confusing. The competition ~might~ be more interesting if it was focused on larger lengthed compositions e.g, symphonies, concertos, masses, operas etc., but I'd be willing to hear arguments for briefer works, 20 minutes + seems like where we want to be looking. You get to submit 1 composition per user (it'll go up to 2 once submissions slow down, and they do). they can be from any era and in any style, cause I know "classical" is a period by itself, I've been using classical as a general term for "western art music" or whatever. so Medieval (or pre-Medieval, if there are surviving compositions that fit the parameters for length) right through to a couple of minutes ago. WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR PICK, PLEASE INCLUDE THE PERIOD AND STYLE. Oh, and we'll be doing discovery rounds, cause I know fucking no one's gonna vote otherwise.
