In response to The Music and Songs of Jane Austen, written by Caroline on July 20, 1998 at 11:30:49
I have come across that title mentioned in the JASNA Society newsletter.
There is another excellent CD of music titled: Jane's Hands; the Jan Austen Songbooks. VOX Classics #7537. I've found it one of the most pleasurable of all the Jane Austen period recordings I've heard.
Composers include Handel; Gluck; Charles Dibdin; Stephen Storace; Samuel Howard; Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire; John Gay; Reginald Sporrorth; John Relfe; Thomas Carter; John Watlen (the music and lyrics or My Mother are indeed wonderful); and Anon. (that woman, again)singing Goosey, Goosey,Gander.
This CD is not only remarkable for its music -- but also its price.
It is only $7.95 (seven --not a misprint). It's a great addition to anyone's collection.
