Jeremiah Clarke (1674-1707)

According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Jeremiah Clarke was an English composer, pupil of Blow; organist, e.g. at St Paul's Cathedral, London. Disappointed in love, he shot himself. Composed church and stage music, choral setting of "Alexander's Feast" (Dryden) etc., and also harpsichord pieces amongst which occurs "The Prince of Denmark's March" which is widely known as "Trumpet Voluntary", sometimes with a misattribution to Henry Purcell  .
