First-class introduction to rousing song (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

air

Here is my best explanation:

'song' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'first-class introduction to rousing' is the subsidiary indication.

'first class' becomes 'ai' (A1 - top quality).

'introduction' indicates taking the first letters.

The initial letter of 'rousing' is 'r'.

'ai'+'r'='air'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for air that I've seen before include "Strain", "Tune; mien", "Show", "what emerges from singer's lungs?", "Atmosphere surrounding us", "Demeanour", "Impression", "Simple tune", "Skye Boat Song, perhaps" and "Look - warm and dry".)
