Composed by Jeremiah Clark (1674-1707). Arranged for Trumpet and Organ by Keith Terrett.
This famous march sparkles all the way from beginning to end. The work was incorrectly known as the Trumpet Voluntary by Purcell for many years.
English composer and organist Jeremiah Clarke was a leading Baroque composer of the generation immediately following Purcell’s. He composed The Prince of Denmark’s March around 1700, in honor of Queen Anne’s husband. At the time, Clarke was the first organist of the then newly rebuilt St. Paul’s Cathedral (at the same time Purcell was organist at Westminster Abbey).
The music is very popular as wedding music (performed at the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana) and was broadcast by the BBC extensively during WW II during the occupation of Denmark.
The work is 2 1/2 minutes in length. Solo parts in Bb and C; accompaniment for Bb trumpet.
Parts are supplied for Bb & C trumpet. Easily within range of intermediate performers. A great choice for ceremonies, weddings, etc.
