looks like it could be an interesting film- score by Icelandic composer Johann Johansson who has done a couple of great albums (Englaborn and Fordlandia to name a couple)

"An elegy in film and music to the coal mining history of North East England, and a unique creative collaboration between the renowned American filmmaker Bill Morrison (Decasia) and acclaimed Icelandic musician and composer Jóhann Jóhannsson.

Created from archive and newly-shot film footage, The Miners Hymns celebrates the sense of vibrant community, rich, self-organised culture and the forbearance that characterised the lives of those who worked underground, and the places in which they lived. Accompanying Morrison s filmic collage, Jóhannsson s newly composed modern classical score draws upon the region s brass music culture: image and sound combine to create a rich homage to Britain s coal mining heritage."

Wonder why they didn't use 'real' brass bands though instead of 'drawing upon the regions brass culture" or is it the same thing? Sounds ok, hope its not like Brassed Off. :D
