Sorry for the plunking attempt on piano, but can anyone identify the name of this piece & the composer? I was sure I had it in my collection but I've been playing CDs for days and still haven't hit upon it. I have tried entering the notes in Musipedia and no luck with it or with trying to play it for Soundhound. :confused: Many thanks in advance. View attachment Record_20220308130018.mp3

Thank you for replying. I've just found both on YouTube. "Trumpet Voluntary: The Prince of Denmark's March" would appear to be a different piece from "Trumpet Tune". Both beautiful!

There are several popular organ pieces commonly called "Trumpet Voluntary":

- the one you asked about, Clarke's "Trumpet tune". Originally not an organ piece but an excerpt from an opera that Clark wrote together with Daniel Purcell, Henry's brother. Somehow it got famous when (wrongly) attributed to Henry Purcell.

- that other Clarke piece, Prince of Denmark's March, originally a simple keyboard piece, for harpsichord rather than organ. Always gets confused with #1.

- 2nd movement of an organ voluntary by John Stanley, op. 6/5.
