The Trumpet Voluntary by Jeremiah Clarke is one of the most often used instrumental pieces of music in weddings around the world. It's melody is very familiar and surprisingly easy to play on almost any instrument. This document contains the free sheet music to this classical selection.
Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary is often misattributed to another computer named Henry Purcell . In truth, the trumpet voluntary that has become so popular for use in wedding processions was first published in 1700 by Clarke under the title "The Prince of Denmark's March." In some circles it is debated as to whether Purcell ever wrote a trumpet voluntary at all, yet to this day many people attribute the familiar wedding song to him rather than to Clarke.
Various debates about the origins of the song and its original format abound. Some believe that the piece was originally written for organ with the trumpet "stop" turned on. More likely is that it was originally written for harpsichord and later adapted to the many different forms it is found in today.
