Oh dear. No doubt you've straightened it out though. In any event, I've moved the reference to Guest at Dr. Kiernan's suggestion. Please let me know if you object.--Wehwalt (talk) 13:46, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes, after investigation no copyvio was found. I've put on the Princess's talk page that I'm fine with your move.

Adela Tindal[edit]

I have just edited the page you created about Adela Maddison, largely to insert her date of birth and parentage. However, you might like to review the assertion that she was an Irish composer, as I haven't found any direct Irish connections. Adela was born in London, her mother in Guernsey, and I think her father in England. Kvaratschelia (talk) 09:41, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The Irishness was as per my referenced source, Grove. I must admit I was a little puzzled by it (other than her mother's name looking Irish) but we have to go with the sources and Groves is obviously one of the highest authorities, and in fact the entry was written by Fuller who was also the author behind two of the other main references I used! I just couldn't find any reliable (or other!) source that said otherwise. I'm curious to find out where you found your material. Could you put the references you used for your bits into the article please? I also see you linked to Frederick Maddison (footballer). I had seen that we had an article for a person of that name, but I didn't link to it as none of my sources made the connection - no musical sources were interested in football and also I couldn't find any football source that was interested in music! I think the connection between these two, if true, is pretty interesting and should really be expanded on. By the same token though that link itself needs an explicit reference to support it - can you oblige? -- Aegoceras (talk) 12:44, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
OK, I've added references for the birth and marriage announcements in The Times, and these can be backed up by various genealogical sites and my own correspondence with their direct descendants. Also, I have corrected the spelling of her first name to Katharine, rather than Katherine. As you say, there is quite a story to be told!Kvaratschelia (talk) 19:52, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
Looking good, I've now just reworded it slightly and put in some wikilinks. There's just one bit that I've tagged as still needing a reference, namely for her mother: the spelling of her name (O'Donel instead of O'Donnell, which is what is in the DNB) and her death year (which is not in the DNB). It would be great if you could dig up a ref for that. Please note though that any ref has to satisfy WP:VERIFY - personal correspondence wouldn't, nor would many websites. It sounds like you have a treasure trove of information though! -- Aegoceras (talk) 11:32, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
I've put in a citation for the mother, as the death announcement in The Times confirms the spelling; but it can also be confirmed at various other sources, such as the marriage in 1853. She died on 1 August 1917 in Hordle, Hampshire, and is buried in the church there. I only started this because I am writing about her husband, so will leave her alone from now!Kvaratschelia (talk) 13:17, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Gabriel Fauré[edit]

Excellent addition to the article. Is Fauré a subject of particular interest to you? There are not enough of us. Best wishes. Tim riley (talk) 18:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks very much, I'm glad you think I found the right spot in the article to put it. Yes, specifically mélodies though I wouldn't claim to be a technical expert. I've been working on Adela Maddison who it seems produced some songs following his style. -- Aegoceras (talk) 10:23, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Good heavens! She comes as news to me. Most interesting. I'll rummage about and see if I can find anything else on her for your consideration. Tim riley (talk) 20:35, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
That would be great if you could, I've pretty much used up my available sources. She's a very interesting character but not too much is known. Unfortunately too it seems no-one knows the whereabouts of her scores from her Paris period, very frustrating! -- Aegoceras (talk) 20:57, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Very meagre gleanings, I'm afraid, but such as they are you can download them from my webspace here. I'll leave them there till you've downloaded them. Tim riley (talk) 16:27, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Got it, thanks - very kind of you. I particularly enjoyed her Musical Herald remark about "fat sheep" - very reminiscent of the Lutyens dismissal of the English school as "cow pat music"! (ouch) -- Aegoceras (talk) 16:57, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
I've just tacked on a couple of press cuttings, if you care to download it again. (Lutyens's jibe has rather backfired, don't you think? Most music lovers seem to prefer the English pastoral lot to her stuff.) Tim riley (talk) 17:09, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks again, I can't disagree with you about Lutyens. Does your magic extend by any chance to uploading images? I know there is a photo of her in "The Sketch" of Nov 1910, at the time of the Leipzig opera. If you do have access, is it to a version that's free of copyright? I must admit my grasp of the WP copyright protocol is shaky so I've never uploaded anything myself -- Aegoceras (talk) 17:29, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
A 1910 image in a magazine would be public domain in the US (which is all we need for Wikipedia) but alas I haven't got access to The Sketch. I have looked through the publications to which I have access, but so far in vain. I'll keep looking. Tim riley (talk) 18:27, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
I have found an image, but it is not a good one. I have posted it to the article talk page for you to see if you want to use it or not. I shall not be the least bit put out if you decide against. Tim riley (talk) 11:00, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Adella Madison photo[edit]

If you upload it on en.wiki, it only has to be public domain in the United States. All images before 1923 are public domain. Tag it {{PD-US}}. For uploading to the commons, you'd have to determine whether it's also public domain in England (assuming the photo came from England). Calliopejen1 (talk) 19:53, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Piano music of Gabriel Fauré[edit]

I have this new article at peer review, if you have time and inclination to look in and comment. I have made reference to Adela in re the 7th nocturne. Tim riley (talk) 15:23, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for spotting what I didn't spot! Cheers, PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 07:54, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Fauré again[edit]

With a guest appearance by your own Adela Maddison. I have the old boy up for Featured Article. If you had time and inclination to look in at the FAC nomination page and add any comments, it would be esteemed a favour. Tim riley (talk) 17:36, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

Towns, townships, etc[edit]

While applying MOS changes to List of township-level divisions of Shanghai, I noticed some of your SH town creations. I must say, they are better than almost all of the town articles I (and many others) create. Although the project will still be far off from complete coverage, if you could write articles for the rest of the towns in SH, that would be an enormous boost. GotR Talk 19:05, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Help[edit]

hi Aegoceras, I see that you are the creator of a number of great articles, all of which should be nominated for DYK, but that is up to you. I started a number of them which I think could need some expert attention. Would you mind improving and expanding on a number of articles? Englefield House, Normansfield Theatre, Normansfield Hospital, The Olde Bell, Hurley, Ingress Abbey, St Alban's Church, Teddington, and Holmbury St Mary. Only if you have time of course, but it would be great. Thank you. Gryffindor (talk) 23:30, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, though I think you are overestimating my expertise and certainly overestimating my stamina! I'm just a WikiSloth after all - Aegoceras (talk) 11:00, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
