That's an impressive collection. By watching some vintage videos I felt like playing Bioshock again. Man, that was a game with style.

I noticed that your category of 19th century music was sorely lacking in pieces, so I put together a list of my 19th century favourites, if that's any help. I may do one for the 18th century as well, later. I'll update this if I think of any others that stand out.

1800s Music
"You can't just remain a root forever. Eventually you grow and change into other things, like stems and leaves and such. Are a tree's leaves an insult to its roots?" - Sade

"It is easy for a statesman, whether he be in the Cabinet or the Chamber, to blow a blast with the wind of popularity on the trumpet of war, warming himself the while at his own fireside; or to thunder orations from this tribune and then to leave it to the musketeer who is bleeding to death in the snow whether his system win fame and victory or no. There is nothing easier than that; but woe to the statesman who in these days does not look around him for a reason for war which will hold water when the war is over." - Otto von Bismarck

I have updated the list with Mahler's 1st Symphony and the Danse Macabre.

This is a shorter playlist of some Mediaeval pieces from the 11th-15th century, which I think are helpful to get a feel for the period in terms of music.

1000s-1400s in Music

I may add to it over time if I find other pieces that stand out.

I understand that the style of music may be quite different to people's normal preferences, but if you will listen to nothing else, try either version of 'Seigneurs, sachiez qui or ne s'en ira', by Thibault of Champagne, which is probably one of my favourites. Both sound quite dramatic and captivating to me, and not only that, but they were written by a noble that ended up not only royally antagonising at least four Kings of France, but also managed to become King of Navarre. :D

If that does not suit you, my second favourite would be Guillaume de Machaut's "Je vivroie liement/Liement me deport". I like the instrumentation very much in this one.

My pleasure. There is too much beautiful music that many people never hear. :D

The 1800s Music playlist has been updated with some Beethoven, Rossini, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Offenbach, Suppe, Strauss, Berlioz and Rachmaninoff. Technically, the Rachmaninoff was composed and first performed on December 2nd, 1900, which still counts as 19th century music. The piece premiered with 29 days of the 19th century to go. :D

Also, I have started a playlist for 18th century music, which would be an appropriate resource for our own Age of Muskets. It is not very long at the moment, so it shall be updated in future. 8)

Vide game that'll be close to HEMA in combatstyle: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/430135984/mordhau
The species name, Vrayijetfhiir, is pronounced:

-Vr-aH_'Et -f_Iii-R
__r -j_____ H'
_r'_ Y_____ -ee
-W_ i'______j'y

Only, this is as good as I can show you, the pronounciation of the name. It's actually pronounced as a single word, not as some single letters here and there. But you hopefully get the gist of it's pronounciation.
