Jeremiah Clark was a composer of Baroque music and his Trumpet March and Ayre is incredibly distinctive. Scored for contemporary concert band by James Ployhar, this adaptation is slated in traditional A-B-A form. The flowing middle section features the woodwinds surrounded by the regal march theme. A stately work that would serve as an excellent introduction to the Baroque style. This title is available in SmartMusic.
