Piece Query

Hi all,

 

A few weeks ago I was at the Sunday Eucharist in Bristol Cathedral when the organist, who was accompanying a visiting choir, opened up on the organ with a piece which I later learned was the Trumpet Fanfare from Purcell's opera "King Arthur". The organist employed the Tromba (or Tuba?) stop to wonderful effect.

 

Is there a specific arrangement of this piece for organ and, if so, who by? It sounded superb.

 

Incidentally, watch this space: I am currently in the fabulous city of Wroclaw, Poland. Upon my return I shall bring information on an interesting project to recreate an organ by Michael Engler from 1752-1760 that was destroyed when one of the churches here caught fire on 09th June 1979.....

 

Dave
