Singing Home and Family: Women's Sheet Music in Early Nineteenth-Century Britain

A presentation that compares Jane Austen's family music albums to those collected by her contemporaries

The late 18th-century saw an explosion in the production of sheet music for domestic consumption and women exchanged and copied from each other. Eight of the sixteen Austen family music albums still exist; eight of these have recently arrived at Chawton House on loan for used in a major study of the entire collection.Professor Jeanice Brooks discusses the use of music by women in the period which reflects currents of taste, ability, educational and performance practices characteristic of their particular social contexts.
