Tune of the Day: King William's March

by Jeremiah Clarke, arranged for two Flutes

Jeremiah Clarke, a British baroque composer, was organist and chorus master for the Chapel Royal. Although now chiefly remembered for the “Trumpet Voluntary”, Clarke was one of the leading English composers of the generation following Purcell. He contributed to many genres, from church music and harpsichord music to incidental music for the theatre.

Originally composed for harpsichord, the majestic “King William's March” comes from the third book of Clarke's Harpsichord Master, which dates from 1702.
