“Monteux and the Spirit World”
As he lay dying, the great conductor Pierre Monteux stated, “When I see Brahms, I must apologize to him for the way I have played his beautiful music.” 
And “he spoke of seeing Arthur Schnabel and Willem Mengelberg.” And he “spoke of Franz Schubert, whom he hoped to see.”
He must have long believed in the Spirit World as we may when we listen to him – It’s in his music.
And of course, so surrendered, he had no fear of death – and nor need we when we surrender to him.
