Candles - lighting up the world

Rickmansworth pianist and composer, Louisa Shiels, has been composing music which she hopes will bring comfort and pleasure to everyone during these strange and unnerving times.

Over the weeks since lockdown at the end of March, she has created a mini-album of pieces for us that reflect her own feelings and moods during the coronavirus crisis. She hopes you’ll enjoy them and draw strength from music as you cope with everything that is happening in the world.
