CarpathiaWilliam Owens - FJH Music Company Inc
This powerful work depicts the frantic voyage of the RMS Carpathia racing to the aid of the RMS Titanic. The whole band is involved in making the sounds of the ship, from the vibrating hull to the ship's bell to the hissing boilers, creating a truly lifelike effect. As Carpathia arrives on the terrible scene, the music turns into a slow, mournful hymn for those who have perished. The music intensifies once more as the rescue ship embarks on her triumphant yet tragic journey to safety. A stunning composition!
