Mourning Titanic Sheet Music 'Wreck of the Titanic'

'The Wreck of the Titanic' sheet music,1912.

'The Wreck of the Titanic' sheet music, 1912.

The Titanic disaster created many commercial opportunities.  Among these was the publication of specially composed sheet music commemorating Titanic and those who went down with her. 

Most of these sheet music songs were highly sentimental and glossed over the terrible human tragedy of the disaster. 

The example shown here, 'The Wreck of the Titanic', incorporated Chopin's Funeral March, but otherwise it was a remarkably cheerful piece.
