"Nearer My God To Thee."

There is a lot of controversy as to what was played, but Wallace Hartley, the band's leader, is said to have stated that that tune was what he wanted played at his funeral when he died (a lot sooner than I'm sure he planned). I believe, based on that, "Nearer My God to Thee" was what was played, but that is only my hope as it is a beautiful hymn.

Regards, Peter
