Henry Westrop made his first appearance at 13, at the Sudbury Theatre as pianist, violinist and singer. He afterwards became organist at St. Stephen's, Norwich; in 1831 at Little Stanmore ; 1832, at Fitzroy Chapel, and April 3, 1834, at St - Edmund, Lombard Street, which he held till his death. He at one time played the violin at the Royal Italian Opera and the Philharmonic Society, of which he was a member. Westrop's abilities as a composer were greater than his reception by musicians and the public would imply.
