Saussure: modify composer name

Postby Pires » Mon Nov 11, 2013 2:57 pm

I recently posted a score under the composer name: De Saussure, H.

I now think this composer would be better represented by the name: Saussure, Louise de

- not incorporating the particle "de" into the surname seems to be IMSLP policy
- the score, as can be seen, bears the names "Madame Hi. de Saussure" (title pages), and "Madame H. de Saussure" (at start of score). However, the Geneva library where the original is held catalogs the piece under "Saussure, Louise de". This also makes it clear that the composer is a woman, in the absence of any tagging for sex.

I hope you'll agree and amend the name accordingly.
