The Pavane in F-sharp minor, Op. 50, is a pavane by the French composer Gabriel Fauré written in 1887. It was originally a piano piece, but is better known in Fauré’s version for orchestra and optional chorus. Obtaining its rhythm from the slow processional Spanish court dance of the same name, the Pavane ebbs and flows from a series of harmonic and melodic climaxes, conjuring a haunting Belle Époque elegance. The piece is scored for only modest orchestral forces consisting of string instruments and one pair each of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, and horns. A typical performance lasts about six minutes.

Bachs juleoratorium, ofte bare kalt «juleoratoriet» (tysk: Weihnachtsoratorium, BWV 248) er et av de mest berømte og spilte sakrale verk av Johann Sebastian Bach, og også det mest kjente juleoratoriet. Det ble komponert mellom 1734 og 1735.

Juleoratoriet består av seks deler, hver av dem oppbygget som en kantate, én for hver av de dengang tre julefestdagene (25., 26. og 27. desember, fødselshistorien, jf. Luk. 2,1-20), nyårsdagen (omskjæringen og navngivningen, jf. Luk. 2,21), søndag efter nyttår (men likevel før 6. januar, noe som ikke er mulig hvert år) og helligtrekongersdag (6. januar, jf. Matt. 2,1-12).
