Jane Austen Musicale Throwdown

"Of music! Then pray speak aloud. It is of all subjects my delight. I must have my share in the conversation, if you are speaking of music. There are few people in England, I suppose, who have more true enjoyment of music than myself, or a better natural taste. If I had ever learnt, I should have been a great proficient. And so would Anne, if her health had allowed her to apply. I am confident that she would have performed delightfully." - Lady Catherine de Bourgh
This week's throwdown question is this: As a Regency lady, which instrument would you prefer to play? The pianoforte, like Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Fairfax, Marianne Dashwood or Anne Elliot, or the harp, like the Musgrove sisters or Mary Crawford?

If I were a Regency lady, I'd prefer to play the
harp free polls

There's no way I could choose between those two. If I had my way, I would be able to play both.

If I had to choose one it would be the harp, I love it's sound.

I chose the pianoforte. It's so elegant and lady like, and it's sound is so beautiful to me. Because of Ms. Austen's books, I want to learn it!

I would love to learn both, but I would chose the pianoforte to learn first :)
