For 11/11/11 at 11:11...

 Since today is a "special day", I have a special post today! I am including in this post 11 songs from 11 different period dramas!

1. Pride and Prejudice - Opening Title
Love this theme song. It's so light and bouncy, yet smooth and flowing.

2. Sense and Sensibility - My Father's Favorite
This is such a sweet song! Definitely going to learn this for the piano when I get the skills!

3. Little Dorrit - Theme
Love this theme song too! It's kind of sad, but at the same time it's sweet.

4. Amazing Grace - Amazing Grace (Bagpipes)

The best version of Amazing Grace I've heard! You can't go wrong with Amazing Grace on the bagpipes!

5. The King's Speech - The Rehearsal

Again, another light and bouncy song!

6. Downton Abbey - Suite

There are a number of really good songs from Downton Abbey, but you can't go wrong with the theme song. I could probably listen to this song for hours!

7. The House of Eliott - Theme (Ends at 0:36)

I couldn't find a video with just the song, so this is the first part of the first episode. I never was much of a fan of the 20s, but this song is very 20s-like and very enjoyable and upbeat.

8. Emma - The Ship's Cook

Favorite song in Emma! I loved this dance scene!

9. Persuasion - Moonlight Sonata

This probably comes to mind since I'm trying to learn Moonlight Sonata on the piano (an easy version, though!). Anne plays it so prettily!

10. Lark Rise to Candleford - Theme

Love this theme too! (Gee, I like a lot of theme songs!) This song so describes the show: kind of quirky (in a good way), but sweet at the same time.

11. The Ten Commandments - The Exodus

The soundtrack for The Ten Commandments should definitely be one of the best soundtracks out there! I love the Exodus song: I can imagine the scene in my head as the song is playing (which is an absolutely breathtaking scene).

Happy 11/11/11!

God Bless,
 God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. Oh, I adore so many of those movies and soundtracks, especially Amazing Grace and Pride & Prejudice. I learned to play "My Father's Favourite" on the piano last year, and it is now one of my favorite songs. So pretty. Thank you for doing this lovely post!


  2. I've been learning My Father's Favourite. :) Quite delightful.

    I love the Little Dorrit, Emma, P&P songs. =) And of course the one forementioned.
