Three hundred years ago, John Eccles came in second in a competition to write music for Congreve's Masque "The Judgment of Paris." His introductory sonata, designated as "Symphony for Mercury" in another source, soon became very popular and is still today regarded as one of the best English trumpet works of its time.
The original scoring for this sonata is trumpet, strings, and basso continuo. This edition includes the trumpet part and a piano reduction.
