Can you identify the classical song playing during this wedding processional? [Video Inside]

I'm editing a wedding video for a friend and trying to overlay a higher quality audio file, but before I can download the song, I need to identify it. Here's the video:

Bonus points for anyone who links to a royalty free version of the song that I can download. This is not for profit - just helping out a friend.

Thanks in advance!

sounds like Mozart or Haydn to me but I may be wrong.

Best answer: Trumpet Voluntary - Jeremiah Clarke

Found some clips on YouTube, if that helps.

Trumpet Voluntary, most certainly.

Response by poster: Bingo! Thank you so much - it will certainly improve the quality of this video ;)

Best answer: It's Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary. There's a MIDI version here under "Bride's Processional", that may work for your purposes (not sure how "higher quality" you need :)

Response by poster: That MIDI will work great - thanks!

Note that this piece was, for many years, attributed to Henry Purcell. Its proper name (given to it by Jeremiah Clarke, the true composer) is Prince of Denmark's March.
