Two trumpets, one silver and one copper, were recovered from Tutankhamun's burial chamber and on 16th April 1939 the BBC ma d a live broadcast of the sound of them being played at the British Museum by bandsman James Tappern of Prince Albert's Own 11th Royal Hussars regiment after more than 3000 years' silence.[1][2]

Delia used the sound of the silver trumpet to create the pieces Tutankhamun's Egypt and Tutankhamun's Trumpet.
