Clarke Prince of Denmark's March



For many years, this composition was known as the Purcell Trumpet Voluntary. But it was not written by Henry Purcell, and it was not written for trumpet. Although there are several arrangements that include trumpet, the original version was actually written by Jeremiah Clarke for the organ. It is called the trumpet voluntary because the organist is supposed to use the trumpet stop on the organ. This music was used for the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981.

This composition can be played by 393,448 different combinations of instruments (really!).
