Jane Austen: The Music (Piano Sheet Music)

Last January, I started to learn how to play the piano. I still a beginner, but I'm on the lookout for new sheet music. Yesterday, this came in the mail...

Jane Austen: The Music! It features music from both Pride and Prejudice (1995) and Sense and Sensibility (1995).

I love how for Mr. Collins's theme, it says to play it "Pompously"! 

There were also pages talking about the plot of both Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. It kind of irritated me, though, that they were calling Edward "Edward Ferrar". IT'S FERRARS!

But alas! There wasn't a picture for Pride and Prejudice!

The music is a bit advanced for me, so it will be a while before I can play anything (I can only play part of treble cleft for a lot of the songs). But anyone who loved the music in Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice and who can play the piano will really enjoy this book. Here are the songs in there (and a good list of songs it is!):

From Sense and Sensibility
Weep You No More, Sad Fountains
A Particular Sum
My Father's Favourite
All the Delights of the Season
Steam Engine
Excellent Notion
Combe Magna
There is Nothing Lost
The Dreame

and, from Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice (opening theme)
Elizabeth Observed
Canon Collins
The Gardiners
Farewell to the Regiment
Thinking About Lizzy
Lydia's Wedding
Double Wedding 

 God Bless,  God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. I borrowed this very book from a friend one time! I learned 'Weep You No More Sad Fountains' and 'Patience' (though to play them again I'd almost have to re-learn them) as well as a little of 'The Dreame'. I started playing 'Thinking about Lizzy' (which is partially Mozart!).

    I think I remember the 'Farrar' annoying me, too...ha

  2. I would love to be able to play those songs,but they might be a little to hard for me to play well.
