The Titanic Requiem: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), Robin Gibb, Aled Jones
On 15 April 1912 the Titanic sank in the North Atlantic and over 1,500 people died. 100 years later, Robin Gibb and his son RJ, commemorate this disastrous voyage and catastrophic loss of life with the release of The Titanic Requiem, their first classical work together.
Recorded at Air studios with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the RSVP Voices choir, and produced by Cliff Masterson and Savvas Iosifides, this modern classic includes three vocal pieces: Daybreak (Mario Frangoulis), Christmas Day (Isabel Suckling), and Don't Cry Alone in which Robin Gibb sings the evocative lead vocal.
The Titanic Requiem's release will be celebrated with a world premiere concert in London on 10 April 2012 at Central Hall, Westminster. Performed in its entirety by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the concert will feature a choir and very special guests.
Founded in 1946 by Sir Thomas Beecham and described by the Daily Telegraph as 'a true premier league orchestra'. Acknowledged as one of the UK's most prestigious orchestras, the RPO enjoys an international reputation for first-class performances.

Robin Gibb was one of the original Bee Gees and a fine songwriter. Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994 in recognition of hits such as 'Massachusetts', 'I've Gotta Get a Message to You', 'How Deep Is Your Love' and 'Stayin' Alive', in recent years he focused more on his solo material, adding further to the treasure trove of songs that bear his name. Robin died in May 2012 following a protracted struggle against cancer.

Aled came into the public eye as the boy-star whose breath-taking performance of Walking In The Air helped make the Raymond Briggs cartoon The Snowman an annual Christmas favourite.
He has continued to perform and record classical and choral music at the highest levels. In 2004 he graced television screens once again, in the popular BBC show, Strictly Come Dancing.
