Voices of Brass

What is it in the sound of brass that appeals to our emotions so viscerally? And how it has become the chosen accompaniment to military life? From the walls of Jericho to the last Trump and from Reveille to the Last Post- a programme for Remembrance Sunday.

Mark Tully himself played the Tuba and this music has always fascinated him. He talks to members of the Minden Band of the Queen's Own regiment about their experiences playing for troops near the front line in Afghanistan and looks at the enduring emotional appeal of a huge variety of band music.
