An awesome combination

The Titanic and the BeeGees--what a combination!

My sister alerted me to the fact that Robin Gibb (of BeeGee fame) wrote a requiem for the Titanic, which was performed before the singer/songwriter's death this spring.

Here it is, in its entirety, thanks to YouTube.  I'm listening to it now, and it seems good--always great to hear choral music, and the requiem service is always moving.

The pop song that came out of it, "Don't Cry Alone" is toward the end, and can also be found by itself on YouTube--a reviewer on Amazon says it "sucks sadness out of the gut."  I think I like the choral music better.
