Gentlemen’s Glee Club of Glasgow, January 1863

On page two of The Glasgow Herald, on Thursday the 8th of January 1863, readers were offered a notice about the previous evening’s concert under the heading: “GENTLEMEN’S GLEE CLUB OF GLASGOW.” It reads:


“Last night, the Gentlemen’s Glee Club of Glasgow gave a concert, for the benefit of the unemployed, in the Trades’ Hall, which was well filled. The able manner in which the programme was gone through did the utmost credit to the members of the club, and to their able musical conductor, Mr. John Fulcher. The club possesses some voices of very superior quality, and all its performances met with very hearty appreciation from the audience. Several of the gentlemen, in singing a number of songs, displayed genuine taste and discrimination in the rendering of their pieces; and two flute solos by Mr. Young were remarkable for their beauty and finish. It is gratifying that the philanthropic intentions of the club met with so liberal a response.”
