Amazon Review
Presents authentic period music, ranging from classical to ragtime, as performed on the fateful voyage of the Titanic on April 14, 1912. Ian Whitcomb--one-time rock star, now a renowned music historian and a specialist in the performance of ragtime and Tin Pan Alley songs--assembled this outstanding collection of authentic music played aboard the Titanic. The book features historical essays and anecdotes, facsimiles of the original sheet music covers, and even photos of the members of the ship's orchestra. This book is a musical/historical tour de force, sure to appeal to singers, pianists, and amateur historians alike.
