    Can anyone help me?

    We are playing an Overture tonight at our spring concert entitled 'The Dawn of Spring' by E. Le Duc. (published by Wright & Round)

    Has anyone got any information on the Composer/Arranger?

    All I know is that he was French.

    Any Offers? :?

    Not French but from Southport!!!

    E le Duc was one of William Rimmer's pen names. He also used F le Duc, W Raymond, Wilton Roche, W Royle and others.

    Best of luck for your concert.

    So if everyone knows that, one assumes that includes you too. So perhaps you'd like to educate us all and inform us of the other pen names that he used.

    Me thinks that Straightmute actually said those a few days ago, if everyone knows that (as you said to Roger), I was hoping you'd name the others! Maybe not though.

    Perhaps not eveyone knows that afterall Rog!
