A Casebook of Otherworldly Music – D Scott Rogo
Case No. 30 - An Elderly Guest
The following case was related in Light (April26, 1884) … The writer of the letter to Light states that at her invitation a poor, elderly woman was invited to a tea party. However, instead of waiting for the concert which was to highlight the affair, she abruptly left. Questioned on the following day as to why she hadn't stayed, she replied that people kept talking to her when she was trying to listen.
Oh my dear lady, it was lovely and I never heard such beautiful music in all my life. [She was then told that no music had been played before she left.] . . . I heard the concert, the whole band. It began so gently, as a far off music, and, they all came swelling in together, and it was the most heavenly music . . . it was not earthly music; but I heard what I shall never forget and if I shall hear such music in heaven, I am willing to be there now.
