The composer of the 1955 Nationals piece, 'Blackfriars', is given in various places as "Edric Cundell". Until today I'd never seen this unusual name questioned - but an item of anonymous feedback submitted to the brassbandresults website today states baldly: Doing a bit of Googling about, I find various biographical details (e.g. he died in 1961), also trustworthy-seeming sources that give his name as "Edric", and, further, other trustworthy-seeming sources that give it as "Eric"! For what it's worth, there are far more Google hits for "Edric Cundell" (6750) than for "Eric Cundell" (only 184) [and all of those hits that I've glanced over seem to refer to this man - fortunately the name is a rare one]. One possible explanation is that he used both names at different points in his lifetime - maybe he was born Eric, but liked to use something that sounded more distinctive? Another is that someone somewhere assumed that "Edric" was a misspelling of "Eric", and 'corrected' it, in an error which has since propagated. Anyone have any knowledge out there?
