BuySoundtrax Records is proud to announce the release of Titanic: An Epic Musical Voyage performed by the White Star Chamber Orchestra and Chorus Conducted by Dan Redfeld. In the 100 years since the famed RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and plunged into the ocean, it has been celebrated on stage, on television and in film.  The recording, which features extensive liner notes by Randall Larson, celebrates the music from these productions.  Titanic: An Epic Musical Voyage will be available digitally on April 3rd, and in stores on April 10, 2012, the 100th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic. 

The heart of this musical voyage is the music composed by James Horner for the Academy Award winning film Titanic.  In addition to a number of tracks of the score from the film, singer Zoë Poledouris performs “My Heart Will Go On.”  Also featured on this album are tracks from S.O.S. Titanic (Howard Blake), Raise the Titanic (John Barry), “The Titanic Trot” from TV’s The Time Tunnel (John Williams), and selections from Maury Yeston’s Tony winning musical Titanic.  Rounding out this recording are two historical tracks, an arrangement of traditional Irish Music (by Joohyun Park) and “Nearer, My God, To Thee”, the hymn reportedly performed by the Titanic’s dance band as the ship went down.
