Summary
When the Titanic collided with that infamous iceberg at 23:40 on April 14th, the eight members of the band had already retired for the evening. Still, they put on overcoats and mufflers came out to play in the lounge. When most of the First Class passengers had taken to their lifeboats, the musicians simply moved to the deck and continued to play, calming the passengers as the ship sank. Survivors' accounts differ about whether their final tune was "L'Automme" or "Nearer My God To Thee," but what has never been disputed is the courage of these musicians who deliberately sacrificed the possibility of escape in order to produce a mood of tranquility at a time of extreme anxiety. But who were they? What journeys brought them to this deck on this icy ocean? Who did they leave behind? Historian and biographer Steve Turner delves into the lives of these brave men, revealing eight unique portraits of bravery
