Cecil Sharp

 Cecil Sharp

Cecil James Sharp (1859-1924)

Cecil James Sharp was born in November 1859 in Denmark Hill, South London, the son of James Sharp, a slate merchant. He attended Uppingham School before starting a mathematics degree at Clare College, Cambridge. In October 1882, he departed for Australia where he resided for nearly ten years, working for five years as Associate to the Chief Justice of South Australia and then as a partner in a private venture, the Adelaide College of Music. There, despite his lack of formal musical training, he taught singing and music theory, in his spare time writing compositions of his own and conducting with the Adelaide Philharmonia Society.
