The Best Hour of the Week: A Patient Describes the Effects of Music-Thanatology

James Excell is a music-thanatologist in the Rogue Valley in Oregon.  This remarkable interview with patient Dene Bish demonstrates the power of music-thanatology to relieve pain. She suffers from Multiple Systems Atrophy.  Describing her time in the music vigil she says, “The pain goes away, tremors die down, tension is less, my breathing evens out. It’s the best hour of the week.”
