'Had the English Orpheus been a trumpeter, this is how he might have played' (Early Music Review)
The trumpet Symphony in Act II of The Indian Queen is extended and sophisticated. It is a transposed and reworked version of the one in the ode ‘Come, ye sons of art, away’, first performed on 30 April 1694, though it has an additional final movement.

from notes by Peter Holman © 1995

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.
