A British composer, violinist and cellist is recording on HMS Victory, the ship on which Admiral Nelson was killed during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, reports BBC News.

Marvin Ayres has been commissioned to compose and record on the ship by the National Museum of the Royal Navy. The recording is part of a four-part musical project to reflect the navy's activities on the sea, under the sea, in the air and on land.

Ayres, who last year made a recording in a 1940s submarine, will play cello, violin and viola on one of the gun decks of the 247-year-old HMS Victory.
