What made the Titanic band keep playing

Those of you who know the story of the RMS Titanic, the steamship which hit an iceberg and sank on April 10, 2012, probably also know that the band kept playing as the ship went down.


Why did the Titanic band keep playing?  Why did they not get into one of the lifeboats and escape?

Well, a friend of DIT may have found the answer and sent us a link to an article  which likely answers the question.

Also, as you probably know, the song / hymn the band played as the giant ship sank was "Nearer my God to Thee".

If you would like to hear a piano play the hymn as you read the words, HERE'S THE LINK
