“Weep You No More Sad Fountains…”

I loved the soundtrack of Sense and Sensibility 1995, and when I came across the CD at a jumble sale, I just had to buy it.

Now I don’t usually listen to instrumental music, but this score really touched me. Having listened to it, I understood why Ang Lee’s adaptation stands out from the rest – good music really does arouse various strong feelings in you while you are watching a film.

Patrick Doyle’s orchestrated version perfectly follows the moods of the characters throughout the film, reminding me of the various scenes, whether happy or sad…


You can get a taster of all the tracks here.


  1. This is one of my all-time favorite soundtracks. I love it so much, I even purchased easy sheet music for it so I could be just like Marianne at the piano. :)

    Happy listening!

  2. @Kaitlin: I would love to have the music for this, too, and pretend to be Marianne! I couldn't sing as well as Kate Winslet does in the film, though...

  3. Oh me either! Believe, I've tried. She's just all around too fantastic!

  4. Hi Anna, how would I go about contacting you for a blog topic proposal? :)
