In 1779, Stanley succeeded William Boyce as Master of the King's Musick. Stanley's works include the opera Teraminta, the dramatic cantata The Choice of Hercules, twelve other cantatas with texts by John Hawkins, the oratorios Jephtha, The Fall of Egypt and Zimri, and instrumental music, notably three volumes of Voluntaries (1748, 1752, and 1754). Some of them are the so called trumpet voluntaries, they were written for organ utilizing the trumpet stop, hence the name; arrangements for string chamber orchestra and trumpet are modern.
