    Abstract

    In her surviving letters, Jane Austen mentions music occasionally among news of friends, neighbours and family. We know that she played the piano and sang, practising regularly, but we have only the opinions of relations who were still young when she died to tell us how accomplished a musician she was. There is, however, rich but inconclusive evidence in the surviving music books from the collection of Austen and her family circle.
