At a meeting of the Kirk-session of the parish of Holyrood in the year 1643 ‘the matter being motioned concerning that organe which was taken down and put into the yle, now lying idle, mothing and consuming; yea, moreover, the same being an unprofitable instrument, scandalous to our profession, whether the same might not be sold for a tollerable pryce, and the money given to the poor. The session agreed that this would be expedient, but postponed the subject.’ Sir John Graham Dalzell’s Musical Memoirs of Scotland.
