What we need now, as the German composer declared in the Ode To Joy, that rousing finale to his well-loved Ninth Symphony, is some more "cheerful songs, full of joy".

There is conflicting advice regarding the use of certain chemicals, so please be careful, especially if treating a piano that has ivory keys.
