Apr 18, 2014 | 11:01am EDT

Former The Police drummer Stewart Copeland has composed a new film score for Hollywood epic Ben-Hur: A Tale Of Christ. His accompanying music for the 1925 movie - the most expensive film made in the silent era - will premiere at the Virginia Arts Festival on 19 April (14). The full orchestral soundtrack features symphonic music mixed with electric instruments and Copeland admits he had a lot of fun making it. He tells the BBC, "Because it's (film) silent I get to be very loud."
