-There are countless more composers than I have room for here, but here is a starter list of around ​375 '​acceptable'​ Artist (and thus Composer) tags which are mentioned here because they happen to be composers whose works I have in my own personal music collection. The list will no doubt grow over time and shouldn'​t be considered '​definitive',​ but merely indicative of what '​correct'​ tagging by composer name should mostly look like. Some footnotes are indicated against particular names, which appear in full at the end of the list.+There are countless more composers than it is feasible to list here, but I've pulled together ​'starter list' ​of around ​400 '​acceptable'​ Artist (and thus Composer) tags -which are mentioned here because they happen to be composers whose works I have in my own personal music collection. The list will no doubt grow over time and shouldn'​t be considered '​definitive',​ but merely indicative of what '​correct'​ tagging by composer name should mostly look like. I mean, for example, that music by Mozart should be Artist-tagged '​Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart',​ not just '​Mozart'​ or '​Mozart,​ Wolfgang'​ or the countless other possible variations and permutations! Similarly, Britten'​s music gets tagged "​Benjamin Britten",​ not "​Edward Benjamin Britten",​ "Baron Britten of Aldeburgh"​ or anything else!! 
 + 
 +Some explanatory ​footnotes are indicated against particular names, which appear in full at the end of the list.
  
 As the mood and time takes me, I will try to attach biographical articles to many of these composer entries. Those composers who have such articles attached will appear in yellow text and appear underlined when hovered-over. As the mood and time takes me, I will try to attach biographical articles to many of these composer entries.
