Musical Pursuits

For years I have loved a song that was played on the piano in the 1995 version of Sense and Sensibility. It happens in the scene where Elinor is standing in a doorway crying while she listens to Marianne play the piano. When Edward approaches her she explains that the song was her Father’s favorite. So when I was in a music shop and happened across a music book called “Jane Austen’s World” I was thrilled to find an arrangement for “My Father’s Favorite”. When I got the book home and started pecking out some of the other tunes I was pleased to discover several more arrangements that I enjoy from some of the films. Learning them should keep me busy over the summer.
