    I had a strong reincarnation memory as a classical music composer in Boston 1853-1937 by the name of Arthur Foote. I listened to his music and read about his life, and I got a visceral feeling that I was that man. I didn't need to go into regression hypnosis, it just came to me as a powerful feeling. I am also a composer of modern classical music and have been writing music since 1963.

    That doesn't surprise me Richard. I've found that talents can carry over from life to life myself.

    Hi Jim. Thanks very much for the support. I've never felt such a strong reincarnation memory as this one.

    That's cool Richard. Is it a specific memory or just a very strong feeling? Personally I don't dismiss gut feelings. Most of my gut feelings have turned out to be accurate.

    I experienced something similar this afternoon, Richard.

    Nothing to define who I was, no name or connection to a person, but a scene. A memory of a small café, at the close of the Second World War, with soldiers and plenty of cigarettes & wine. It was while listening to Milord by Edith Piaf, and since then I've been craving a cigarette. I don't even smoke!!

    If it's a strong gut feeling, follow it and see where it goes.

    No, Jim, not a specific memory, but lots of images and gut feelings about living in the Boston area as I have for the past 50 years.

    Thanks Yvette. The more I look into this guy's life the more it meshes with my own experiences. I've never felt so strongly about a past life as this.

    I was brought up with classical, opera and operetta and have listened only to the older composers such as of course Mozart, Beethoven, Rossini etc. I had never heard of either of your names so I just went on youtube. I shall certainly be listening to more works by Arthur Foote. The sort of classical music that is right up my street. Very wonderful, and I wish I had heard it before
    I shall listen to your music as Richard St Claire when I have more time tomorrow. Btw, we aren't supposed to use our real current names on here. I expect admin will notice and explain though, although I am glad you did in this instance so I could look up your work in this life.

    I was quite well known as an artist in one life, but not a great master. Just ok really but I never persued art seriously since. Enjoyed daubs from time to time but that is all.

    Food for the body and art for the soul. Thank you for such beautiful art for our souls, and welcome here :)

    Thank you, Angie. By the way, my family name is St. Clair (no final 'e'). That should help you find my YouTube videos.

    I was also brought up with the classical tradition, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Schubert, and Brahms, later on Beethoven. It always felt like home to me even when I was only 4 years of age. By the way, I've listened to many of Arthur Foote's musical works. He's a real giant. A hidden talent for so long, having been buried historically under the avalanche of modernism. Foote is a romantic through and through, just "my kind of guy"!!

    Thanks for your interest.

    I don't think there is anything that can transcend music for reaching our bodies, minds and spirits. I believe scientific research has borne this out, too. E.G. MhZ experiments.

    I can't listen to Handel's Largo from Xerxes or the overture from Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana without experiencing a sensation of floating and an exquisite sense of beauty that is almost heart rending - but not heart rending in a painful, nasty way. Just such pure beauty it is beyond the description of words.

    From the little I listened to earlier of Arthur Foote it wouldn't surprise me if he had created such a gem. I am astonished he is not far more widely known. I shall be sharing yt links to your work as AF, anyway. Of course I shan't mention on yt that you have posted on here, as that is something you would do yourself if you wished to.

    I am embarrassed and do apologise for adding an 'e' to your name now. It is late here in England, so I shall have to search yt tomorrow. Best wishes

    Angela

    No apologies, Angie, it's a common typo! Hope you like some of my music!

    That's a very interesting memory. Something similar happened to me once. Spontaneous, sudden knowledge.
    As for composing music, I have been writing a few pieces myself. Not much and nothing grand, but very old-fashioned... now I have zero memories of ever having been a music composer.

    Anyway, I am happy for you that you were able to find out and remember.
