Who composed this piece?

Jeremiah Clarke (1673-1707) was an English composer who held several prestigious posts as an organist and choirmaster. He is best known for a Trumpet Voluntary arranged for trumpet and organ by Henry Wood and attributed by Wood to Purcell. Clarke published it with the title "The Prince of Denmark's March" in a collection of harpsichord pieces in 1700; but Clarke also included it among some pieces for winds.
