Prince of Denmark's March - Jeremiah Clarke
Prince of Denmark's March - Jeremiah Clarke The Prince of Denmark's March, commonly but erroneously called the Trumpet Voluntary, is a musical composition written about 1699 by Jeremiah Clarke, the first organist of the then newly rebuilt St Paul's Cathedral. For many years, the piece was attributed incorrectly to his elder, and more widely known, contemporary, Henry Purcell, who was organist of Westminster Abbey. The misattribution emanated from an arrangement for organ published in the 1870s by Dr. William Spark, then town organist of Leeds, England. It was later adopted by Sir Henry Wood in his well known arrangement for trumpet, string orchestra, and organ. The oldest source is a collection of keyboard pieces published in 1700. A contemporary version for wind instruments also survives.[1] According to some[which?] sources, the march was written in honour of George, Prince of Denmark, the consort of the then Princess, later Queen Anne of Great Britain. The march is very popular as wedding music;[2] it was played during the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles in St Paul's Cathedral. It was broadcast often by the BBC during World War II, especially when programming was directed to occupied Denmark. A brief portion of the tune can be heard at the end of the Chumbawamba song "Tubthumping" and in the fade-out of The Beatles' song "It's All Too Much". It was also one of the seventeen classical pieces used in creating the lead track of the 1981 Hooked on Classics project. This piece is also used on The ...

Squire "Tarantella" . Georg Mertens from CD "Cello Solos" To download from iTunes click: itunes.apple.com To download from Amazon click: www.amazon.com Physical CD: www.georgcello.com Arranged for cello solo and performed by Georg Mertens on 21 June 2008 at Jenolan Caves Australia. The story of the Tarantella goes back to the bite of the Tarantula spider of the Mediterranean. When you have been bitten, you have to dance the Tarantella - otherwise you might die! In part A the spider approaches with all the drama. In part B everything seems pleasant and alright again. At the return of part A the poison sets in and the speed gets faster up to a frenzy. At the end chords the poor bitten victim collapses into the healing coma due to having danced the Tarantella - the cellist is released. As for interpretation, according to the story, the piece starts rather in a moderate speed getting faster and faster in the da capo of part A.

Fantasia SL Weiss
Fantasia SL Weiss Giuseppe Corso plays :Fantasia SL Weiss Weiss was the most important and the most prolific composer of lute music in history and one of the best-known and most technically accomplished lutenists of his day. He wrote around 600 pieces for lute, most of them grouped into 'sonatas' (not to be confused with the later classical sonata, based on sonata form) or suites, which consist mostly of baroque dance pieces. Weiss also wrote chamber pieces and concertos, but only the solo parts have survived. In later life, Weiss became a friend of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and met JS Bach through him. JSBach and Weiss were said to have competed in improvisation, as the following account by Johann Friedrich Reichardt describes:Anyone who knows how difficult it is to play harmonic modulations and good counterpoint on the lute will be surprised and full of disbelief to hear from eyewitnesses that Weiss, the great lutenist, challenged JS Bach, the great harpsichordist and organist, at playing fantasies and fugues."
