    I am hooked on the theme music to Dickensian! It is just so right for this excellent production. As soon as I hear it I get a tingly, fuzzy feeling which means, ‘I’m going to enjoy this’. Congratulations to Debbie Wiseman, the composer.

  2. Gilly Roberts says:

    l intend to purchase this sound track, which is hauntingly different. PLEASE tell me the name of the hammered dulcimer player in the title theme, and other tracks. l, too am a hammered dulcimer player, and intend to play along with the sound track, as soon as l can get my hands on a copy.
    Gilly Roberts. HD player.

    I have been trying to track down the song performed by Nancy in the Three Cripples in ep 10. Does not appear to be on the soundtrack??

  4. Terry Clewes says:

    Last night I watched the final episode of Dickensian during which Nancy sang a beautiful song in the ‘Three Cripples’ inn, I recall this song from my primary school music lesson ( 65 + years ago) but I’ve not heard it since. It is one of the loveliest songs I’ve ever heard, can anyone tell me what it is called, I want to hear it again.
    Hope someone can help.

        • Robert says:

          That really was the most beautifully performance by Nancy–totally haunting, it had me spellbound.

    Loved the song Nancy sang in the last episode. Must have heard it too in my childhood it sounded hauntingly familiar. I too would have liked it on the soundtrack
