The members of the Titanic's main orchestra.

Throughout the years, "Nearer, My God, To Thee" has become ensconced in the Titanic legend as the ship band's final song. Many survivors are on record as recalling hearing the song being played as the lifeboats were being loaded and the ship continued to sink. One 1912 newspaper account even stated that some of the lifeboat passengers actually hummed along with the band as it played the popular hymn.
