In researching the biography of Charles Nicholas Weiss, I am putting together a list of all his known compositions.
I have found though, that the British Museum has 15 of his works in their collection, but they are listed under the name of Carl N Weiss. Perhaps in his compositions he gave his name as Carl, however, in every reference to him in the newspapers of the time, he was known as Charles N Weiss or CN Weiss. I even have a copy of a letter he sent to the music dictionary compiler John Sainsbury, in which he refers to himself as Charles N Weiss, and it even lists some of the works held by the British Library. I have not yet found him referred to as Carl in any historical documents of the time.
I wonder if I can convince the British Library to change it? Probably not - I'm an upstart (a blogger, no less) from the colonies.
