A number of people have requested something with the tuber.

This very fine "Trumpet Tune," appears in Volume VI of the works of Henry Purcell(1659-1695), as given by the Purcell Society.

This fine transcription was done by Osborne H. Peasgood (1902-1962), who was Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey. He did a number of fine transcriptions, of which his work on Handel's "Water Music," is considered to be particularly fine.

I played this brief work twice. The first time, the tune is played on the Great Trumpet (played on the Choir, so as to be able to use the Great Diapasons for the accompaniment), and the second time upon the Solo Tuba, eventually building toward the Full Organ.

I dedicate this to all the "tuber lovers" out there! :-)
