An arrangement of my popular two trumpet voluntaries, set for solo Bb Trumpet and strings in the lower key of Bb concert.

This choice of key makes the set accessible to younger players, not yet ready for the extremes of the trumpet clarino tessitura!

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 misattribution 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).
