Healing power of music

There is an organization in Australia, Hush, which plays classical music to children to soothe their nerves during hospital visits. It's interesting the CD's are a collection of both modern and established classical pieces. Elgar, Chopin, Schubert pieces are on some CD's while other's contain music by Paul Grabowsky or Andrea Keller (modern composers).

Having listened to some of the music I'd liken it to something like Wyndham Hill, lovely and soothing.

Somehow I don't think any of my pieces (ref: my Violin Concerto No 1) are going to make it on these albums.
