Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henry Russell (24 December 1812 or 1813, Sheerness, Kent, UK - 8 December 1900, London) was an English pianist, baritone singer and composer, born into a distinguished Jewish family. In an eventful life on both sides of the Atlantic, Russell wrote the songs "A Life on the Ocean Wave" and the tune to George Pope Morris's poem Woodman, Spare that Tree while living in United States from 1835 to 1841, before settling in London to produce musical extravaganzas until he retired in 1857. Many of his songs championed social causes like abolition, temperance, and reform of mental asylums.show more
