Sonata from the play Tunbridge Walks in D major
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.
