I see that Joseph (Bernard) Williams (1847-1923) is credited with using a long list of pseudonyms, viz. Florian Pascal, Lionel Elliott, Pierre Duchêsnes, Arthur Grenville, Emlyn St. Maur, Mark Calmond, J. B. Waldeck, Charles Tourville, and Conrad Huber.
Florian Pascal is important as the composer associated with W.S. Gilbert's "Eyes and No Eyes", and "Lionel Elliott" has been associated with another Gilbertian work, "No Cards", but the other names don't seem to connect to anything else in the musical world. So I would be very interested to know what source links Williams to all these names. The identity of "Lionel Elliott", in particular, has long been speculated about.
I'd be most grateful for any information anyone can provide.

- I have now added a link to the source for all those names - the US Library of Congress. If you click on the first link under 'See also', and navigate to the first library listed (the one with the little US flag next to it), you will see that the LC has compiled a list of pseudonyms that they have reason to believe were all used by the same person. (The naming of IMSLP's page appears to be from Baker, 8th ed.) Cheers, KGill talk email 18:38, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

- Hrm. Does this page have to do with someone who was also Joseph Williams the publisher? He died ca.1883 according to the Musical Standard, which reports on his obituary. Eric 09:47, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
