The Harp and the Ferryman: New book about Music-Thanatology

My colleague Peter Roberts, a music-thanatologist in Australia, has published a book called The Harp and the Ferryman. Co-written with Dr. Helen Cox, the book traces Peter’s journey from businessman to music-thanatologist, as well as the research Dr. Cox has done on the effects of Peter’s music on patients.  I had the pleasure of reading the book before it was published, and it is a moving account of this field and his work.

Peter’s recordings are exquisite.  Spend some time listening to the samples on his website.  You can learn more about Peter’s journey in this profile, “Compassionate Care Through Music.”
