Best Classical Music of All Time – Chronological

I found 10 lists of “best classical music” and combined them into one list.   Here are the results – every piece of music that was on four or more of those lists, organized chronologically by date of composition of the original version.  When there is a range of dates, I use the latest date.  To see the list organized by rank, that is, with the pieces that were on the most lists at the top, go here.  To see the same list organized by composer, go here.  To see a list of the best classical composers, with a selection of their best works, go here.
