Have you seen the book:-

Critchley, MacDonald & Henson, RA (EDS.). Music and the brain.
Southampton: Camelot Press, 1977.  ISBN: 0433 06703 9.

It is quite old now, but gives a good start on the subject.  You should
also try a Medline search on the topic.

Ask you local library to order a copy for you.  You might have to pay a
bit for the loan.
