extra sensory

Last night I remembered a strange thing which happened to me a few years ago. In my former home city of Glasgow there is an excellent museum of Religion. When I went to visit it, I got a piece of music stuck in my head as soon as I went through the door (Haydn’s Little Organ Mass, as far as I recall). I spent a long time going through the exhibits, and by the time I was six rooms through the building I noticed a small TV showing various worship forms of the world, including Native American, Hindu and Christian ceremonies, about a minute of each. The Christian ceremony was from Wells Cathedral, and featured the choir singing the Haydn piece which had stuck in my head. I’m still amazed by this – the TV was on very quietly and was six rooms away from the entrance – no way it was in regular hearing range.
