If you follow the FAQ, as Lesley suggests, you'll find information on the music used in the productions, and what is available for sale.
We also know of CD by a lady called Karlyn Bond, who has made a recording of piano music known to have been played by Jane herself. I have just had a quick look in the Ramble Archives to see if there is anything in there about it, but I haven't found it......I believe it's called something fairly straightforward like "The Piano Music of Jane Austen".
I don't know of any websites specifically devoted to Jane Austen's music, but if you find out the names of specific pieces of classical music via the FAQ, and then search for that name under MIDI files in a search engine, there are lots of bits of recordings all over the place.
The P&P theme tune is used on the
Ostentatious Jane Page, and you can hear it played there.
I confess I'm a bit baffled by your request for music that" Jane Austen listened to." Perhaps, if the information I give here isn't sufficient, you could post again with a few more details of exactly what you need, and why.
