Superb, but where is the rest of it?
on March 29, 2006
I have not a single complaint about this soundtrack, save for the fact that much of the festive ball music is missing. Upon much research, I've discovered that many of them were authentic English Country dance tunes that can probably be found online or off another CD. For those interested, here's a listing:
1. Black Bess - Jane and Mr. Bingley's first dance at the Meryton Townhall and when Elizabeth asks Mr. Darcy if he dances ("Not if I can help it")
2. The Young Widow - Major ensemble dance at the Meryton Townhall while Mr. Darcy and Caroline Bingley stood watching. Included is when Charlotte was dancing with Mr. Bingley and when Mr. Darcy watched Elizabeth.
3. Wakefield Hunt - After Elizabeth tells Mr. Darcy that the way to encourage affection is through dancing, and she turns and walks away.
4. Duke of Gloucester's March - The arrival at the Netherfield ball when Elizabeth is walking through the house looking for Mr. Wickham.
5. The Bishop - Elizabeth's dance with Mr. Collins at the Netherfield ball.
Hope this helps anyone interested in the festive numbers, aside from these missing pieces, the score included on this soundtrack could not be any better!
