We're currently learning Variations on "Mein Junges Leben Hat Ein End" (My young life has an end) by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, thanks to a lovely arrangement by composer Victor Kioulaphides.

Virtuoso classical mandolinist Hugo D'Alton played mandolin on Pavane - Fall of The House of Usher - from Tales of Mystery and Imagination, an album by progressive rock band The Alan Parsons Project.
