Helen Jane Long
Down 64. 2nd of Helen Jane Long's 3 entries this year.
Helen Jane Long is one of the very few female composers to appear in the Classic FM Hall of Fame, meaning she's beat stiff competition from the likes of Clara Schumann and Hildegard Von Bingen — but musically she couldn't be further away from them.
The title track from her second album, released in May 2010, Embers quickly became widely requested on classical radio stations around the world, in particular on Classic FM. It's hard not to be charmed by its hypnotic, soothing refrain.
