Violin part from Two Voluntaries for Solo Trumpet & String Orchestra (Professional Version)

Composer
Jeremiah Clarke
Duration
3 minutes
Genre
Classical music

The ’Trumpeter’s Essential Wedding Tackle’’; is currently two trumpet voluntaries by Jeremiah Clarke for solo D Trumpet and String Orchestra, with optional Timpani.

This version is for players who are confident in the extremes of the Trumpet’s clarino tessitura.

The smallest forces possible with this arrangement would be solo trumpet and string quintet, whereas the largest forces would include as many strings as you can muster plus timpani!

The two pieces arranged so far are ’’Trumpet Voluntary’ from the composer’s ’’Choice lessons for the Harpsichord’’, & ’Trumpet Tune’ from the ’’Island Princess’’.

This collection includes works by John Stanley,Handel, Purcell, Vivaldi, Teleman and Lully.

I have available transpositions for various trumpets, so the trumpeter can choose the instrument of his or her choice! Parts are available on request.

The Prince of Denmark’s March, commonly but erroneously called the Trumpet Voluntary, is a musical composition written about 1699 by Jeremiah Clarke, the first organist of the then newly rebuilt St Paul’s Cathedral.

For many years, the piece was attributed incorrectly to his elder, and more widely known, contemporary, Henry Purcell, who was organist of Westminster Abbey. The mis-attribution emanated from an arrangement for organ published in the 1870s by Dr. William Spark, then town organist of Leeds, England. It was later adopted by Sir Henry Wood in his well known arrangement for trumpet, string orchestra, and organ.

The oldest source is a collection of keyboard pieces published in 1700. A contemporary version for wind instruments also survives. According to some[which?] sources, the march was written in honour of George, Prince of Denmark, the consort of the then Princess, later Queen Anne of Great Britain.

The march is very popular as wedding music; it was played during the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles in St Paul’s Cathedral. It was broadcast often by the BBC during World War II, especially when programming was directed to occupied Denmark.

A brief portion of the tune can be heard at the end of the Chumbawamba song "Tubthumping" and in the fade-out of The Beatles’ song "It’s All Too Much". It was also one of the seventeen classical pieces used in creating the lead track of the 1981 Hooked on Classics project.

This piece is also used on The Colbert Report as the theme for the recurring segments Colbert Platinum (on trumpet) and Colbert Aluminum (on kazoo).
