 Tubular Bells - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tubular Bells is a record album, written and mostly performed by Mike Oldfield (and later orchestrated by David Bedford for the Orchestral Tubular Bells version).
Tubular Bells can be seen as the first of a "series" of albums consisting of Tubular Bells II (1992), Tubular Bells III (1998) and The Millennium Bell (1999), leading some critics to suggest that Oldfield was like Quasimodo — "chained to the Bells".
Tubular Bells stayed in the British charts for over five years, reaching the number 1 spot after more than a year and taking there for one week the place of his second album, Hergest Ridge, thereby becoming one of only three artists in the UK to knock himself off the first spot.

 Tubular tower bells
Large tubular bells, cast from the approximately the same material as conventional tower bells or drawn (extruded) from similar metal, have been used to make tower music or to serve as bells for tower clocks.
Such bells are not to be confused with orchestral tubular bells (often found also in pipe organs) nor with the smaller tubular bells found in some longcase ("grandfather") clocks, even though some manufacturers might have supplied all of these markets.
Tubular bells may have been used in France as early as the 1850s or 1860s.

 Patents on tubular bells
Although few of these patents are specifically related to the use of tubular bells in tower chimes, all have some relevance to the development of tubular bells.
John Harrington, of Coventry, Warwick county, England, patented a clock-chime of tubular bells in that country in 1884.
What: Tubular Bell - a tubular bell which was reinforced by an annular ring inside and/or outside of the top edge, which was the point of strike for the hammer; cites the unsatisfactory performance of prior art, especially the diametric pin; this clearly refers to one of the possibilities covered by Harrington's 1892 patent.

 New Sounds Interview
TUBULAR BELLS, the first volume, was pretty far ahead of its time in a lot of ways, in the use of incredible amounts of overtracking, it seems, and there was a lot of processing of the sound of guitar, in one way or another.
The combination of sounds on the beginning of TUBULAR BELLS 1 was a grand piano, it was a sort-of sustained flute-y sound on the Farfisa organ, and a glockenspiel, and there was that combination of three instruments that created that sound.
TUBULAR BELLS doesn't belong in that world, so it was inappropriate to use large elements of the classical world, and so we scrubbed that idea.

 Percussion instrument - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, a distinction is usually made based on whether the instrument can play a definite pitch or not.
The timpani, xylophone, marimba, balafon, vibraphone, bell, tubular bells (chimes in the U.S.A.), crotales, and glockenspiel all play a definite pitch.
Percussionists are also called upon to play a variety of instruments which are not percussive or are not generally thought of as percussion instruments.

 Symphony No. 10 (Pilgrimage to Gosainkund) - by Philip Goddard -- programme note
For some two to three years I'd had the idea in my mind of a choral work in which the only accompaniment would be from the sound of tubular bells.
The latter, in my mind, were both an ordinary set of orchestral tubular bells being played 'live' and a wide-range MIDI keyboard using a quality sampled sound of tubular bells, in which the sound could be played over the full range of a concert grand piano.
