"Thomson was an enthusiastic amateur musician. He was one of the directors of the first Edinburgh musical festival (1815). He played the violin, and took an active part in the Edinburgh St. Cecilia concerts of his day. It was from hearing Tenducci's rendering of Scottish songs at these concerts that he conceived the idea of making a collection of national airs. In the end he issued three separate (folio) collections: the Scottish in 6 vols. (1793-1841); the Welsh in 3 vols. (1809-1814); and the Irish in 2 vols. (1814-1816). .Thomson's plan in regard to the music was original and bold. Before his time there were no introductory or concluding symphonies to the airs he collected, and the accompaniments were indicated by the uncertain system of 'figured bass'. He resolved to supply both deficiencies, and had his symphonies and accompaniments written in turn by Pleyel, Kozeluch, Haydn, Beethoven, Weber, Hummel, and Bishop, to whom he paid large sums. It was at his instigation that Bishop set Burns's 'Jolly Beggars'. He found many of the old airs associated with objectionable words, and with the view of procuring new words, he corresponded with Burns, Scott, Hogg, Moore, Byron, Campbell, Joanna Baillie, and others. Burns began to write for him in 1792, and continued till his death in 1796, the collections from first to last containing about 120 of his songs." (DCB) "In this work many of the most celebrated effusions of Burns were first printed." (Lowndes, which cites 5 Vols., 1799-1818). cfGibson, The Bibliography of Robert Burns, p. 115.
