I've been doing a bit of research on Rosemary Brown. I first saw her name in one of those Readers Digest Paralnormal books. Here's what I found out. I've put it into a kind of essay format:

Not a very well known person of the musical world, yet she has composed several things. She had no knowledge of music at all, but she claimed that she could comunicate with the dead. She first found her "gift" when she saw Franz Liszt in a dream. Liszt asked her to write and publish some music he had composed after death, and she did, exactly how he told her to. She had no idea who it was she was even talking to until she saw a picture of Liszt years later. She also saw several other composers who reqeusted the same thing. They include: Bach, Chopin, Stravinsky, Schubert, Grieg, Debussy, Rachmoninoff, and she even finshed Beethovenís Tenth and Eleventh Symphonies for him. She talked as many as 20 dead composers, most of which were very well known. Brown was born to a mother who was said to have phsycic abilities herself.

This is all that I have so far, but I've only just started research. I'll add more information as it comes. Do any of you have anything to add to this? I think that Rosemary Brown is a very interesting person. Many people are skeptical as to wheather or not she could actually be doing this, and that she secretly knew how to play piano and read music and just made all of this up. However, the works that she published were so close to the styles of the composers that she published them under that there has to be more to the story than just that, if these skeptics are right. I, however, believe. I am a believer in all of that kind of thing.

Of course you're entitled to believe what you choose to believe and what you want to believe; no one will dispute that.

I wouldn't normally voice an opinion on this but you DID ask, didn't you? I wouldn't give any time or any effort to this type of research. I also don't read the National Enquirer, although, about certain things, I do have an enquiring mind.

Regards,
