Sonata from the play Tunbridge Walks in D major

composer
British Library Add.MS 49599; Harmonia Anglicana, vi, 1703

 
The British Library manuscript is the source for the trumpet sonatas by James Paisible and John Barrett. The sonata by the London organist John Barrett is scored for trumpet, oboe and strings, and was presumably inspired by Purcell’s use of the same scoring in the Act II Indian Queen symphony. It appears by itself in the British Library manuscript, but a printed version in Walsh’s series Harmonia Anglicana reveals that it was originally the overture to his suite for Thomas Baker’s play Tunbridge Walks; or, The Yeoman of Kent, first produced at Drury Lane in 1703.

Le manuscrit de la British Library est la source des sonates pour trompette de James Paisible et de John Barrett. La sonate de l’organiste londonien John Barrett est écrite pour trompette, hautbois et cordes, une instrumentation prenant sans doute pour modèle celle adoptée par Purcell dans la symphonie du deuxième acte de The Indian Queen. Cette sonate apparaît sous la forme d’un manuscrit isolé à la British Library, mais un tome imprimé des Harmonia Anglicana de John Walsh révèle qu’il s’agissait à l’origine de l’ouverture d’une suite que Barrett composa pour Tunbridge Walks; or, The Yeoman of Kent, une pièce de Thomas Baker produite pour la première fois à Drury Lane en 1703.

Das Manuskript der britischen Bibliothek ist die Quelle der Trompetensonaten von James Paisible und John Barrett. Die Sonate des Londoner Organisten John Barrett ist für Trompete, Oboe und Streicher instrumentalisiert und war vermutlich von Purcells Gebrauch der gleichen Partitur im zweiten Akt der Symphonie Indian Queen inspiriert. Es steht als alleiniges Manuskript in der britischen Bibliothek, aber eine gedruckte Version in Walshs Serie Harmonia Anglicana entlarvt, daß es ursprünglich die Ouvertüre seiner Suite für Thomas Bakers Schauspiel Tunbridge Walks; oder, The Yeoman of Kent, erstmals 1703 in Drury Lane aufgeführt, war.
