Summary

This chronological checklist page, covering the years 1861-65, is intended to include all original Australia colonial musical works, significant arrangements, and musical editions specifically aimed at colonial audiences, documented or extant from the five years in question.

It tables musical works by Australian resident composers, in print and manuscript, lost and still existing, as well as new songs written by colonial songwriter/lyricists to existing imported tunes, and targetted colonial editions such as, for instance, popular songsters, musical albums, and hymnbooks. Also tabled are a small number of musical works composed specifically for Australian sale and use, by composers who never visited the colonies.

Not included in this page, however, are colonial manuscript copies or printed editions of the general run of imported musical works by composers or arrangers who never visited Australia, for example, local editions of internationally popular songs like Henry Bishop's Home, sweet home, or instrument music like George Osborne's waltz La plui de perles.

Where a digitised copy or electronic bibliographic record of a piece of music exists, it is live-linked to the title.

Like everything in Australharmony, the page is a work-in-progress, made available now for the use and information of interested others, but always subject to updates, corrections, and improvements.

Update schedule (January 2017)

This checklist page, covering the calendar years 1861 to 1865 inclusive, was largely built in 2014, and is now due for additions, updates, and corrections to bring it into line with earlier checklist pages recently updated:

1826-30; 1831-35; 1836-40; 1841-45; and 1846-50

One particular problem, for which I apologise, is the significant number live links that no longer work.

This problem mainly affects sheet music items digitised by the State Library of Tasmania.

When and wherever possible, they will be repaired and replaced with persistent links.
