Memphis Jazz Orchestra co-founder and U.S. Navy musician Carl Wolfe has handpicked, produced, and arranged memorable music Titanic fans will adore. Nearly every piece of Titanic music has the same instrumentation that was used by the musicians on board the iconic ship. Music Aboard the Titanic also includes two original songs composed by Wolfe that encapsulate the spirit of the Titanic’s calamitous journey. “Leaving Queenstown” is a grand, majestic song inspired by the optimistic beginning of the ship’s maiden voyage. “Fateful Hour” is a more somber piece that represents the Titanic’s tragic sinking.
Nearer My God To Thee & Titanic Sinking Music
“Nearer, My God, to Thee” was said to have been one of Titanic band leader Wallace Hartley’s favorite songs. Whether you’ve got a scholarly interest in the Titanic or just a love of the 1997 movie, you’ll recognize this unforgettable Titanic sinking music. Sarah Flower Adams’s “Nearer, My God, to Thee” song is a Christian hymn that, according to legend, was played by the musicians on board the Titanic as it sank into the icy water. Rumor has it that the musicians continued to play until the very end. This momentous Titanic song caps off Music Aboard the Titanic by paying tribute to the courageous and stalwart musicians on board the sinking ship.
