    apparently

    "Nearer, My God, to Thee" is associated with the sinking of the RMS Titanic, as some survivors later reported that the ship's string ensemble played the hymn as the vessel sank. For example, Violet Jessop said in her 1934 account of the disaster that she had heard the hymn being played;[27] Archibald Gracie IV, however, emphatically denied it in his own account, written soon after the sinking, and wireless operator Harold Bride said that he had heard "Autumn",[28] by which he may have meant Archibald Joyce's then-popular waltz "Songe d'Automne" (Autumn Dream).[27] In feature films based on the Titanic disaster, the "Bethany" version was used in the 1929 film Atlantic and the 1943, 1953 and 1997 films titled Titanic, as well as the 1996 miniseries, but the "Horbury" version was played in the 1958 film, A Night to Remember
