I therefore give you Lord Berners (1883-1950) as an initial offering.
More information available here: http://www.britishclassicalmusic.com/berners.html
I have a great CD of some of his music (including the witty Diaghilev-commissioned ballet "The Triumph of Neptune" - which featured at the Last Night of the Proms in concert suite form way back in 1993 I think) and it's all good, humorous stuff.
To sum up the enobled one, his tombstone reads:
Here lies Lord Berners
One of the learners,
His great love of learning
May earn him a burning,
But, praise to the Lord,
He seldom was bored.
Have any of you heard of the good Lord and/or know any of his works?
