Historical Notes

Henry Russell (1812 /13-1900) was an English pianist, baritone singer and composer, born into a distinguished Jewish family. He began his career as a child singer in Elliston’s Children’s Opera company. While playing the organ at the Presbyterian church in Rochester, New York, he discovered that sacred music, played quickly, "makes the best kind of secular music". In 1841, he returned to England and performed at the Hanover Square Rooms in London with instant success. Many of his songs championed social causes like abolition, temperance, and reform of mental asylums. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Russell_(musician)
