    hi all, just wondered if anyone knows of any pseudonyms of BB composers and arrangers, I know that H.R. Moreton was Harry Mortimer and I know that Rimmer had Pseudonyms, are there any others? :wink:

    There's an arranger called Bernard Hazelgrove - surely this is a pseudonym? :?:

    Major Rickets (can't think which one - there were two brothers) wrote as Kenneth Alford;

    Peter Warlock was the pseudonym for Philip Heseltine, and Bernard Shaw wrote articles - not music - under the name "Corno di bassetto".

    Bernard Hazlegrove was real and played solo cornet for Hanwell in the 60's.

    Rimmer names included Hirem Eden, F. Le Duc, Michael Laurent, Kenneth Henschel, Carl Hessler and Heather Dene.

    Robert Eaves is indeed Edward Gregson.

    I saw very recently - possibly here at TMP - that Morley Calvert was a nom-de-plume for Meinhart Boekel. I can hardly believe it, but am prepared to be convinced by someone who knows better. :?: Perhaps it was posted on the Dutch equivalent of April Fool's Day?

    I knew Morley Calvert personally, and it was his real name.

    so how many pseudonyms DID Rimmer have!!, a lot of his music is still brilliant today, especially the marches (the Cossack is my fave at the mo) :wink:
