About the images in the enclosed book (80 pages)The photographs in this book are taken from The Father Browne SJ Photographic Collection. Frank Browne (1880-1960) sailed with the Titanic on the first part of the luxury ship’s maiden voyage from Southampton to Cobh (Queenstown) in Ireland.The trip was a gift from his uncle who had also given Browne a camera which enabled him to document the journey. Brown befriended a well-to-do American family onboard. They invited him to travel on to New York with them but Browne’s uncleopposed and ordered his nephew to land in Cobh. It was a blow for the young traveler but ended up saving both Browne and his unique photographs.The book is also illustrated with Per Nørgård’s scores for Titanic.TitanicMusic by Per NørgårdText by Thorkild BjørnvigChristian Steffensen, recitationEdit, mix and master: Gert Skjød SørensenRecording engineer: Benni BossThe original tape element used in the premiereof Titanic on April 14, 1962 has been digitizedand re-used on this CD.Svend Nielsen, violinJens Wilhelm Pedersen (Fuzzy), clarinetErik Norby, trumpetPer Nørgård, pianoBirgit Nielsen, vocalsTechnician: Harry Damgaard
