Music From Beyond the Veil
BBC Radio 4

For as long as music has been part of human life, philosophers, sages, artists and other commentators have acknowledged the powerful connection between musical experience and that ineffable sense of Divine wonderment we call the Spiritual.

Forty years ago a Balham housewife and medium with little musical training created a sensation when she claimed have received new works from beyond the grave from Liszt, Brahms, Beethoven, Rachmaninov and other great composers. Rosemary Brown's abilities divided the musical world, with her supporters convinced that the works were genuine while her critics dismissed them as pastiche. Could composers and musicians pass on music after death?

Professor Paul Robertson examines the claims and counter- claims for musical mediumship and asks whether musical inspiration comes from within ourselves - or could it come from somewhere beyond?

14th July 2009, BBC Radio 4
Producer: Jeremy Grange
