Since his works are obscure and fun, I've been spinning them into digital copies on Musescore, which can be followed by the composer link: https://musescore.com/artist/emanuel_de_beaupuis-1890 or hashtag https://musescore.com/sheetmusic?tags=Beaupuis covering both his compositions and transcriptions.

One of Beaupuis' works, the Op.35 Queen's Reign March had a missing final page in the National Library of Australia scan uploaded to IMSLP. I obtained that last page today, and updated my re-setting on Musescore. I also added a minor early work, not previously available, Le Chant du Berger, published in "The Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times", April 1 1890.

I copied a few items that caught my eye in the NSW State Library earlier this week in a collection from the period 1900-1910. There were two slightly different editions of a piece by the prolific Grenville Dean WILSON (1833-1897): Moonlight on the Hudson Op.60
Listen: https://musescore.com/user/4151271/scores/7166409

Despite - or because of being - quite garish, it must have been a hit for the composer as the sheet music wrapper lists versions in 2,4,6 and 8 hands!

Identifying the composer took some twists and turns as he is simply identified as G.D. WILSON on the sheets and the Connecticut College's Historic Sheet Music Collection mistakenly gives his names as Glenn Daniel Wilson https://digitalcommons.conncoll.edu/sheetmusic/927/ (nb some pages needed to be rotated 180 degrees),


I found another of his works on Pianophilia in one of the old PP archive threads One century of salon music 1850-1950
Wilson - Tripping Thro The Meadows - Polka Caprice for Piano.pdf

Of his over 170 works, some are available on IMSLP: https://imslp.org/wiki/Category:Wilson,_Grenville_Dean
and in the National Library of Australia: https://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Search/Hom ... hatimean=1
