The Wreck of the Titanic

Wreck of the Titanic

“The Wreck of the Titanic” is a descriptive fantasia published in 1912 by Haydon Augarde retelling the tragedy of the sinking of the Titanic. It’s a medley of different tunes put together to tell the story. The intertitles follow the descriptions in the music and I’ve added some video extracts from news footage of the time. I wasn’t able to find much information on Haydon Augarde, not even dates. Several different composers wrote similar pieces, so if I can find some more I’ll record those too.
