See also this Microtonal Spotify Playlist. Put it on Shuffle and have a great intro to xen in every genre.

A list originally started by Andrew Heathwaite. If you think anything should be changed, change it yourself! Or leave a note about it here.

For a list of pieces that were originally written in a non-xenharmonic context, and then translated into a xenharmonic tuning, see Familiar melodies in unfamiliar tunings. (Stephen Weigel's YouTube channel, Mike Battaglia's SoundCloud, and H. Wakabayashi's YouTube channel have great examples of these).

Notable examples from 20th century classical music that briefly use the 7th harmonic, and for the Britten piece, the 11th harmonic as well:
