The World's Greatest Music
Charles Dickens is the most celebrated English novelist of the 19th century. His books – including such classics as ‘Oliver Twist’, ‘David Copperfield’ and ‘Great Expectations’ – have inspired countless film and TV adaptations with great scores. But Dickens also has other connections with classical music.
The writer also enjoyed singing and wrote a few songs and ballads himself. These include ‘The Ivy Green,’ which also appears in ‘The Pickwick Papers.’ Pictured is Harry Secombe who played Pickwick in another musical version - a 1963 show with music by Cyril Ornadel and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.
