Biographies

Henry Marsh was active as a publisher, composer, music teacher and pianist in Sydney in the 1850s and 1860s. There are no known dates of birth or death, nor any available date of his arrival to the colonies, but by 1851 he had established a music publishing business and gave music and singing lessons, at one time in association with WH Paling and at another with CE Horsley. Henry Marsh performed regularly in concerts as a singer, pianist, or conductor. He was also an entrepreneur, and ran a business selling pianos. Together with WG Mason he printed and published the Sydney Illustrated News in mid-1854, in which there is an extensive list of his music publications. He published many of his own works as well as those of other composers. He operated his teaching and publishing pracices from various premises in Sydney. Most of his compositions were popular dance pieces for piano. Works such as the Galop for Gold and The Nugget Schottische commemorate the NSW gold rush of the 1850s. Marsh was a brother of the harpist and colonial composer Stephen Hale Marsh, who established a branch of the publishing business in Melbourne from 1852. Henry Marsh appears to have ceased publishing in the early 1860s. He was listed as a professor of music in the city directories until 1873, which perhaps suggests his date of death or departure from the colonies.
