I’m 100% sure. I was watching Kate Beckinsale’s Emma (A&E, 1996) tonight (just borrowed it from my friend), and was struck by the music for the ball where Mr. Knightley watched Emma dancing (with Frank Churchill), which is about 1 hour 3 minutes into the show (scene 8: The Ball). Now, as most of you, I’ve listened to Becoming Jane’s second ball scene (or famously called ‘Husbands and Lovers’ scene in YouTube) many times, and also a few times of the Behind the Scene by Special Treats Production. The music was very similar to Emma’s ballroom music.
I’ve listened to both music several times by now, both BJ and Emma, and am sure that it’s the very same. The music in Becoming Jane is a bit slower than the one in Emma, but I like the slower beat in BJ better for it is indeed appropriate for the scene where Jane danced with Tom. Now, I just have to find out the name of the score, for the 1997 Emma did not show the music credit.
In any case, I’m SO happy that I’ve learned that the particular music I’ve been looking for is somewhere there… a classical music somewhere I can buy!
