Of the three main trumpet and tuba tunes, we all know that Tuba Tune is by C. My sheet music attributes it to Purcell, as do most recordings on the internet. Under the 'Biography' section, the 2nd paragraph mentions the mis-attribution with Trumpet Voluntary Prince of Denmark's March , so the last paragraph is definitely talking about Trumpet Tune.
Looking at their references, it seems to be two music books. This page explains how easily pieces can get mis-attributed already, so is it possible that Trumpet Tune has been incorrectly attributed to Jeremiah Clarke by one or two people? It's funny how desperate for an answer one feels when something which they assumed was concrete knowledge all along is now so uncertain! Tags: None. Originally posted by JonathanP View Post.

He certainly could write some brilliant voluntaries.

It'd be good to hear a trumpet tune that actually is by Purcell! I look forward to seeing what this music is that's in your car.
I knew I forgot another very popular one, that was it. I haven't got around to picking that one up yet, but it won't be long now I'm sure.

I never knew that Purcell's "Trumpet Tune in D" wasn't by him. At first I thought that the Wikipedia article was a hoax, just copied by everyone else, but I suppose it must be correct. There's even a recording on Clarke's The Island Princess from which it supposedly comes.

Along with Henry Purcell it is pretty certain that both Jeremiah Clarke and Daniel Purcell Henry Purcell's younger brother or cousin also contributed to this production, leading to the confusion. These brassy reed pipes were used for joyful, rhythmic tunes. This piece has become a standard at weddings, and it is usually played right before the beginning of the ceremony and has even been used in several Royal weddings.

Purcell died in at his home in Dean's Yard, Westminster, at the height of his career. He is believed to have been 35 or 36 years old at the time. The cause of his death is unclear: one theory is that he caught a chill after returning home late from the theatre one night; another is that he died of tuberculosis.
