    The Edinburgh Harmonists’ Society was founded in 1822 as the direct successor to the Catch Club and thereby of the Edinburgh Musical Society which began in 1728. It continued until 1950, when it became part of the Edinburgh Musical Society to which it transferred its papers and above all its valuable library, much of which had belonged to the Catch Club.
