Trumpet Voluntary-Jeremiah Clarke

Trumpet Voluntary by Jeremiah Clarke (1674-1707) is probably the perfect recessional song for your wedding. I used this version because French trumpeter Maurice Andre (1933-2012) was one of the finest trumpeters of the 20th century.

Fun Fact: The horn he is playing in this clip, is called a piccolo trumpet, because of the smaller size, as well as its ability to play in extremely high registers, not reachable on a traditional trumpet.

Clarke wrote during the same period as more celebrated Baroque masters Bach, Vivaldi and Handel. This piece is one of the most recognizable 3:35 minute pieces in the history of “Classical Music.” Music of the Baroque period adds a uniquely stately, regal air to any occasion. Trumpet Voluntary is the perfect soundtrack to celebrate your wedding vows

Let me know what you think.
