DESCRIPTION:
Published to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the Titanic 's launch comes this inspiring portrait of music and courage. When the Titanic collided with an iceberg on April 14, 1912, the eight members of the ship's band had already retired for the evening. Still, they put on overcoats and came out to play in the lounge. When most of the First Class passengers had taken to their lifeboats, the musicians moved to the deck and continued to play as the ship sank. One surviving passenger said: "Many brave things were done that night, but none were more brave than those done by men playing minute after minute as the ship settled quietly lower and lower in the sea." The music they played served alike as their own immortal requiem and their right to be recalled on the scrolls of undying fame. But who were they? What journeys brought them to this deck on this icy ocean? Who did they leave behind? Music historian and biographer Steve Turner delves into the tragedy of that fateful night through the lives of these brave men, revealing eight unique and inspiring portraits of bravery.
