Jeremiah Clarke’s birthday

Originally shared by The Cloberth

Birth in London circa 1674, this date marks the death, in 1707, of English Baroque composer Jeremiah Clarke. Clarke’s best known piece, the Prince of Denmark’s March, was for years misattributed to his contemporary Henry Purcell. Clarke and Purcell were both pupils of John Blow, Composer to the Chapel Royal, where Clarke was appointed organist.

The March, also known as the Trumpet Voluntary, was written in honor of Prince George of Denmark, husband of Queen Anne of Great Britain, and has been used as wedding music often as wedding music for royalty and commoners.
