      The Britannic Organ Vol. 3


      Toccata and Fugue by Bach
      In Memoriam Titanic
      Funeral March (Chopin)
      Excerpts from “Der fliegende Holländer” (Wagner)
      and many other organ treasures as well as dance music, entertainment and “cinematic accompaniment” from the huge 20th century ocean liner

      Diverse organists and original Welte-Philharmonie music rolls


      Volume 3 from the series of the Welte-Philharmonic- Organ, which was originally built for the Britannic ocean liner, is dedicated primarily to entertainment on board a steamer.

      But this recording also pays tribute to the sister ship of the Britannic, the Titanic, which sank nearly 100 years ago in 1912. Among other things, we hear compositions written specifically to commemorate the tragedy. Curiously, a number of versions of Nearer my God to thee are found here: this song was supposedly heard once again on board the Titanic , after the North Atlantic had already devoured large parts of the ship.
