Mystery Stories - Dead Music Composers Write

Again and Other Stories

Composers such as Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Johann Sebastian Bach, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Franz
Schubert, Edvard Grieg, Claude Debussy, Frédéric Chopin, Robert Schumann and Ludwig van
Beethoven are said to have written compositions after their death – with the help of a south-London
housewife, Rosemary Brown in 1964.
Brown was first introduced to the world of dead musicians when she was only seven years old. A
spirit appeared to her, told her that he was a composer, and would make her a famous musician one
day. Brown did not know who he was until about 10 years later when she saw a picture of Franz
For generations, Brown and her family members were allegedly psychic, and Brown has displayed
psychic power at an early age. She shared events before they took placed, claiming that her
“visitors” have told her.
Brown claimed that the dead composers dictated their “new” musical works to her. Speaking in
English, each composer has different style of dictating their work to her. Browns have written down
40-page of sonata from Schubert, a three-movement Fantasie-Impromptu from Chopin, two sonatas
from Beethoven, including his 10
and 11
Symphonies, both unfinished.
The dead composers’ transcriptions were later performed in a recording titled The Rosemary Brown
Piano Album. Brown has also published a few books including Unfinished Symphonies: Voices from
the Beyond.
These works have been examined by experts who confirm that they are definitely written in the
respective styles of the composers. Furthermore, Brown paid very little attention to music and has
little musical education and could not possibly have written such music herself. In 1964, after Liszt
re-appeared to her, she bought a second-hand piano and took lessons for three years. Her
neighbour, once a church organist was not impressed with her playing, saying, “She could just about
struggle through a hymn”.
Some music critics have assessed Brown’s works and agreed that they resembled the composers’
published work. There were suspicions that these are forgery and imitation work, but considerably
musical knowledge and years of training are essential to be able to do so.

Dream of Death

In 1779, Lord Thomas Lyttleton (a British MP and profligate) dreamt that he would die in three days
time at sharp midnight. It upset him so much that he told his friends about the dream in the
following morning. They tried to reassure him that everything would be alright, but he could not get
the dream out of his mind. The days followed and he suffered from extreme depresses ion as the
fatal hour approached.
On the third evening, he invited some guests to his house for dinner in an attempt to forget about
the dream. As midnight approached, he became more and more anxious and depressed. Eventually,
he could not take it anymore and retired to his bedroom to await death.
He lay on his bed and watched the clock tick away his final seconds. As the clock struck midnight,
Lord Lyttleton wondered how he was to die, but nothing happened !
A few minutes later, one of his guests looked into the room to check on him and was surprised to
find the Lord in the highest of spirits. “I’ve beaten death,” cried Lyttleton. “I’ll be down to join you all
When the butler entered the room a while later, he found his lordship lying on the bed gasping for
breath. The butler rushed downstairs for help, but it was too late. Lord Lyttleton was dead. One of
the guests looked at the bedroom clock and said his dream was almost right, but the time was
slightly wrong. It was then half past twelve.
The buttler corrected him and said that since Lord Lyttleton was so worried, he altered all the
household clocks to half an hour earlier today. The dream was true – Lyttleton died on the stroke of
