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.
Dickens often referred to popular songs in his novels, as they were heard in a domestic setting. A well-known dance tune of the day, ‘The College Hornpipe’ is mentioned in both, ‘Dombey and Son’ and ‘David Copperfield.’
