    Have you ever thought about what sort of biscuit might represent your favourite classical composer?

    An Oxford academic has become a social media sensation after comparing some of the world's best-known composers to sweet snacks.

    Dr Leah Broad compared Bach to a Chocolate Leibniz, because it's a biscuit you "cannot go wrong with", while Vivaldi should be a Garibaldi biscuit because they are "inexplicably wildly popular".

    Dr Broad, who lectures in music at Christ Church College, said the idea came to her while having a snack.
