Music Samples

In 2014 Brass Tracks recorded a variety of sample tracks from music of the last 500 years to music from the Golden Age of television and film.
Most recently, in June 2017 Brass Tracks were given the opportunity to try out the new recording equipment in the band hall of champion section brass band, Whitburn – Scotland’s finest brass band. Brass Tracks recorded a number of arrangements for brass quintet, including, Gershwin’s, Four Hits For Five.

Wedding Music

Brass Tracks is frequently requested to perform at weddings in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.   This is recording of Brass Tracks performing a ceremonial favourite, Jeremiah Clarke’s, Trumpet Voluntary at Edinburgh’s Canongait Kirk Hall – the Queen’s parish when at home in Holyrood Palace.  This gives a sample of what many brides wish to walk down the aisle to on their wedding day.  Brass Tracks can suggest or recommend other suitable repertoire for a wedding ceremony and offer a light musical set for an accompanying drinks reception or wedding breakfast.
