For a long time, the 'Trumpet Voluntary' had been considered to be a composition by Henry Purcell, but it was Jeremiah Clarke who actually composed this highlight of trumpet literature. Also known as The Prince of Denmark March, it was originally written for keyboard instruments. Clarke (1674-1707), organist and choir master at the London Saint Paul's Cathedral, composed a lot of works, but this wonderful gem is the only one that has remained alive - and is often played at weddings in England still today. The same festive character can be found in another composition by Clarke - 'Trumpet Aire', an ideal complement to the better known sister work.The two settings are now available in a well-priced single edition - to the great delight of performers and listeners alike, we are sure.
