Composed by William Owens (1963-). Developing Strings. FJH Developing Strings. Score only. Full Set (score and parts) also available: ST6247. Score only. Duration 2 minutes. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.ST6247S).

Item Number: FJ.ST6247S

This powerful work depicts the frantic voyage of the RMS Carpathia, the first ship to arrive on the scene after receiving a distress call from the Titanic. The use of stomping and hissing helps depict the vibrations of the ship's hull along with the hissing of the boiler. The music becomes slow and mournful as the ship arrives on the terrible scene before embarking on her triumphant yet tragic return voyage to safety. Optional percussion adds to the dramatic effect. Stunning!
