Dans le deuxième acte de The Indian Queen, la trompette est étendue et sophistiquée. Il s’agit d’une version transposée et retravaillée de celle de l’ode «Come, ye sons of art, away», jouée pour la première fois le 30 avril 1694, à laquelle vient s’ajouter un mouvement final.

Die Trompeten-symphonie im II. Akt des The Indian Queen ist läng und anspruchsvolle. Es ist eine umgestellte und umgearbeitete Version der Ode „Come, ye sons of art, away“, die erstmals am 30. April 1694, jedoch mit einer zusätzlichen finalen Handlung, vorgetragen wurde.
