Jane Austen and Classical Music
13. From notes to banknotes
'Of music! Then pray speak aloud,' wrote Jane Austen in 'Pride and Prejudice'. 'It is of all subjects my delight. I must have my share in the conversation if you are speaking of music. There are few people in England, I suppose, who have more true enjoyment of music than myself, or a better natural taste. If I had ever learnt, I should have been a great proficient.'
