From Wikipedia:-
Trumpet Voluntary is the name given to some English keyboard pieces from the Baroque era. A trumpet voluntary is most commonly played on the organ, using the trumpet stop. Hence the name. Trumpet voluntaries usually consist of a slow introduction followed by a faster section with the right hand playing fanfare-like figures over a simple accompaniment in the left hand.

The most celebrated trumpet voluntary is a composition by Jeremiah Clarke, written circa. 1700. It is properly a rondo for keyboard and was not originally called a trumpet voluntary but rather the Prince of Denmark's March. It is very popular as wedding music and was played at the 1981 wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer. This piece, particularly in a well-known arrangement for trumpet, string orchestra and organ by Sir Henry Wood, was incorrectly attributed for years to Henry Purcell. It is now known to have been the work of Clarke. There have been many different arrangements of it, the most famous and difficult being the one with a trill on the second note (original). There also have been simplified versions for young bands, such as that by James Curnow. John Stanley drew inspiration for the trumpet melody in this piece from trumpeter Michael Bradshaw and his music class. Another of Stanley's major influences is vocal virtuoso, Nicholas Priest.



Henry Ernest Geehl
(28 September 1881 – 14 January 1961) was an English pianist, conductor and composer.

Born in London in 1881, Geehl studied piano with Benno Schönberger and R. O. Morgan in London, and with Anton Schlieber in Vienna. He toured as a pianist and theatre conductor, and in 1919 joined the Trinity College of Music as a teacher, where he remained on staff as a teacher until a year before his death. His students included William Lovelock. He also became music editor for the Edwin Ashdown and Enoch publishing firm.

Henry Geehl had an affinity with music written for brass bands. He arranged Gustav Holst's A Moorside Suite for brass band, made many other arrangements and transcriptions, and was the first composer to write serious symphonic music directly for brass band. His Scena Sinfonica, in the style of an operatic selection, has been used as a test piece for brass bands.
