Music in Maryhill Barracks, April 1907


On Monday the 29th of April 1907, The Glasgow Herald mentioned on page ten, in its General Scottish News section, that:


“The experiment of Sunday music in Maryhill Barracks, after a lapse of several years, has proved very popular. At yesterday’s performance, despite the unsettled weather, there was an attendance of between 1500 and 2000 persons. The band of the 2nd King’s Own Scottish Borderers, under Bandmaster J. J. Dunn, played the following programme:- March, ‘Militaire’ (Thomé); overture, ‘Pique Dame’ (Suppé); selection, ‘Cavalleria Rusticana’ (Mascagni); song, ‘The Chorister’ (Sullivan); gavotte, ‘Eunice’ (Perdue).”
