On December 29, 2015, a contributor to Film Music Reporter confirmed the film's score was being composed by Mark Suozzo, who has composed the music for all of Stillman's previous films.  French composer Benjamin Esdraffo wrote additional pieces, including the opening harp theme.  The score was recorded in August 2015 at the Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin, with Suozzo conducting the Irish Film Orchestra.  Film editor Sophie Corra was involved in selecting the music, while Etienne Jardin, an expert on period music, helped with the musical research.  Stillman commented that while Austen's novel was written during the 1790s, they felt earlier music appeared to reflect "the spirit of the piece" better.  Suozzo added that "the music of Love & Friendship brings the Georgian era to life through a variety of musical styles".  The soundtrack includes original compositions and well known and obscure classical pieces by William Boyce , George Frideric Handel , Henry Purcell , Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi .  The score was released on May 6, 2016.
