His invention of the "Harmonia" encouraged such comtemporaries as Beethoven and Mozart to compose music for that instrument and was widely known and sought after at soirees and grand parties throughout London and Paris. It was also noted he possessed "...a pleasing voice" when put upon to raise it in song, particularly in the songs and hymns from Scotland, which he prefered to the music of Handel in England.
