Jane austen on ten pound note

Jane Austen - 1775-1817


Like today's young people, Jane Austen "shared" the music she liked with her family and friends.  She did it by hand copying it to sheet music.  Her "likes" are now available for free downloads here.          



The photo on the left is of one of Jane Austen's many music books where she compiled all of her and her family's hand copied sheet music.  The photo on the right shows one of the works she copied. Notice her signature in the top left corner. Right click to see a larger version of it.
