Sizzle! by Nathan Daughtrey is a lively percussion piece, set primarily in 4/4 with a section of 6/8. However, the occasional 5/8 and 7/8 bar creeps up just to keep the audience on their toes.

Licht und Liebe (Light and Love), D352, is one of the only two duets that Schubert wrote. The close is one of the most beautiful moments in all Schubert.

Nacht und Träume (Night and Dreams), D827, is rated as one of the most beautiful and rapturous songs that Schubert wrote.

Die Nachtigall (The Nightingale) and Morgengruss (Morning Greeting), are two delightful songs for choir by Felix Mendelssohn and his sister, Fanny Hensel.

The ever popular profane cantata, Carmina Burana, is a scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff in 1935 and 1936, based on 24 poems from the medieval collection Carmina Burana. Much of the compositional structure is based on the idea of the turning Fortuna Wheel. The selection of poems covers a wide range of topics: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling and lust.

Most classical listeners are familiar with the full orchestral version of the work, but in 1956 Orff arranged this version for two pianos and percussion.
