This list of music inspired by Alice is comprehensive and well managed. If you know of any other compositions, please contact Marcus directly - the Lewis Carroll Society believe that this should be regarded as the definitive list.

Music Inspired by the Works of Lewis Carroll

Contrariwise: Songs from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
By Daniel Hales and the Frost Heaves

"For this album we adapted (almost) all of the poems in the two Alice books for music – and also wrote a few Alice-themed originals. These adaptations were originally composed and performed for a stage production of Alice In Wonderland, but can now provide the soundtrack for your own adventures in magical realms.
