A detailed account of the activities and repertoire of this short-lived music society formed from the elite of Glasgow with a view to improving church singing in general. Their ambitious move to buy a Donaldson organ in the early days of the Institution may have contributed to its demise. The Donaldson was located as part of this research in a local organ builder's workshop having been rescued from a building in a poor state of repair: a photo of the music desk bearing Donaldson's name is included with this paper.
