Music Net presents Mike Oldfield’s classic album performed live in the spectacular setting of St Peter’s Church by Tubular Brass – a 28-piece brass band featuring some of the UK’s finest players. Plus their world premiere performance of Mary Casio by Hannah Peel that combines 70s analogue synthesisers with brass to stunning effect.

Tubular Brass is a brand new brass band created to perform contemporary music and develop collaborations with artists from across the musical spectrum. Whilst firmly rooted in the brass tradition, Tubular Brass aims to bring brass band music to a new audience by creating extraordinary projects and collaborations.

It regularly appears in Top 100 Albums of All Time lists across the world. In the beautiful and atmospheric interior St Peter’s Church, Tubular Brass will be presenting the world premiere of a new score for brass of this pioneering sonic masterpiece.
