FST?

So, I have a general idea:

Who would like to contribute music to come up with a fan soundtrack for the Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrel book?

To get the ball rolling, I have a song:

Lamento; just about 30 seconds sung by a choir

So, does anybody else have music that reminds them irresistibly of JS&MN?

"Marvelous things", by Eisley, makes me think about JSMN fairies.

Otherwise, a friend of mine had done a fanmix, and the song were :

Lost-Hope : "Ballroom" by Venus and "Sanssouci" by Rufus Wainwright.
Lady Pole : "Ravens land" by Voltaire.
Jonathan and Arabella : "English Rose" by The Jan and "One more last kiss" by Ivy.
Lascelles and Drawlight : "I've been to a marvelous party" by The Divine Comedy.
The Raven King : "Out of breath" by Venus
Jonathan and Norrell : "I'm slowly turning into you" by The White Stripes (which is quite crack-ish, since it's a romance song, but otherwise it works !)

Oh jeez, I wish I'd seen this in April! I'd been wondering the same thing ever since I read the book -- as soon as I develop an obsession for something, music begins to remind me of it and I can't help but form my own little playlist. But JS&MN has been thwarting me for years; something about it is so difficult to capture in music.

I've also been (slowly) putting together a FST totally independently and hope to finish it by the end of the month. Go figure. But I think the more people involved, the better range we'll have. The search should continue.

Let me know when you get it finished! I'd love to hear what you've come up with.

I suppose it doesn't help that it's something so contextually bound, and most music produced today isn't along the same lines as late 18th century Britain.
