Classical Music Experts-- What Is This Piece?

Postby Majestic » Thu Jun 16, 2011 5:51 pm

Hi,

Can someone help me identify the harpsichord piece that begins in this clip at 00:40?

I know, I know--- it's an old, nutty conspiracy theory radio piece, but I find this kind of stuff entertaining to listen to sometimes. :lol:

Hi Majestic,

Your regal, fancy, kinda "churchy" piece has been identified by our Twitter friend janezstyle as "Trumpet Tune" by English organist and Baroque composer Henry Purcell.

YouTube: http://youtu.be/ngn77Nl9HIk
iTunes: http://bit.ly/kHi5gq
Amazon: http://t.co/P9JOue3

You may have heard it played at a wedding or two thousand, and your version is all organ, but as the title suggests it was originally intended for trumpet :)

Enjoy!
