Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any information about Haydon Augarde. I was at BARNS AND NOBLES reading a book about the Titanic very usefull information, and they where talking about Music books and how he published music book in 1913 called "THE WRECK OF THE TITANIC" I looked him up a little on Goggle but i real didn't find much. I was wondering i anyone out there knows anything about Haydon? Thanks everyone. Oh yeh and one more thing, If there would be anyway to get a hold of the music book, this would be extremley usefull for me if possible. But like i said if anyone out there has any information regarding haydon please post a message. Thank you all again. Bye-Bye

Caroline,

The 'book' you're interested in isn't a 'book' but sheet music. There's a picture on Scott McIntyre's site: http://www.northnet.org/mytitanicwebsite/page28.html (Scott's site features pictures of quite a bit of his collection of books and ephemera.)

I had a quick look on Google and Haydon Augarde pops up a few times as the composer of short descriptive pieces of music on topical events (Titanic, World War I) and general subjects (romantic pieces), sometimes based on more established classical works (ie themes on melodies from Wagner's operas Lohengrin and Tannhauser). The four pieces of music I found were published in England suggesting he was English, with the nature of the work indicating it was for the home pianist. However, these four pieces are only from 1912 to 1914, so that's not much to go on. Hopefully someone else will know more of him.

For another example of his work, the sheet music for his 'World at War Fantasia' can be viewed in its entirety at: http://nla.gov.au/nla.mus-an6805431

As for finding your own copy of the Titanic sheet music, eBay would be worth a look. Some of the antiquarian and used books sites / networks carry sheet music too. There's one listed on Abebooks.com at the moment at well over US$125.

Hope that helps.

(ps this subject doesn't belong in the Movies forum, so don't be surprised if it's moved to a more appropriate forum at some point.
