Wow that's a lot of his music! Do you maybe have a good link to some sort of biography of his?
Here's my small contribution of a little performance of parmi les fleurs:

Fantastic stuff, Gamma!

A search of Pianophilia will produce several other Elliott scans I've done, but as for biographies, not much is available. Even Gerald Leach's otherwise excellent book on British composers doesn't even mention him. However, Philip Scowcroft does give him a brief mention, here:-

I hope that I’m using this site correctly. I’ve been search for a piece called Prelude in G Major by Godfrey (Gottfied) Keller died in 1704 in Britain. I have not been able to find it anywhere! Does someone have a copy from before 1922?

It's in a Celebration series collection published by the Royal Conservatory of Music, more precisely (Piano repertoire album 7) and is available in libraries and second hand book sites (search by ISBN)

If buying I would check that the piece is in that volume, in case it has been mis-indexed. Also, there have been multiple editions of this series,the current (2015?) edition has different contents to the 1994 edition. https://shopus.rcmusic.com/products/piano-repertoire-7

Thank you so much. I want to republish this piece on iPad but I cannot determine if this piece is an arrangement or not. Keller didn’t write very much keyboard music. An old copy of the score would confirm that what I have from the RCM album you speak of has been arranged. If it it has been arranged I can’t publish it.

It would be helpful if you declared that you had the RCM score already, rather than that you can't find it. :(

Readers may be interested to know of a new disc from EM Records, played by Duncan Honeybourne. De Profundis Clamavi contains a whole slew of premiere recordings of music by Edgar Bainton, Cecil Armstrong Gibbs, Parry and many others besides. The piece that really got me was Piano Sonata by Christopher Edmunds (1899–1990). Very highly recommended!

cheers,
Daniel
