Back in Normandy: a Hungarian composer (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

haydn

Here is my best explanation:

'composer' is the definition.

(Haydn is an example)

'back in normandy a hungarian' is the subsidiary indication.

'back' says the letters should be written in reverse.

'in' says the answer is hidden in the clue.

'ndyah' can be found hidden inside 'normandy a hungarian'.

'ndyah' backwards is 'haydn'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for haydn that I've seen before include "Austrian symphonist, d. 1809", "Barman", "The Surprise symphony composer, d. 1809", "Composer of over 100 symphonies", "Joseph -, prolific eighteenth to nineteenth century Austrian composer", "Classical composer", "Creation composer", "COMPOSER", "Austrian musician" and "Austrian composer, d.1809".)
