Sense and Sensibility

Due to losing his fortune irrevocably to his younger brother, Edward releases Lucy from their engagement (she immediately goes off and snares the one with the cash), rides to Barton Cottage, proposes to Eleanor and becomes a vicar. Brandon marries Marianne and Willoughby sits on his horse halfway up a hill on the verge of tears, watching his true love live happily ever after.

Question: Very near the beginning, Marianne is playing this tune that she says was her father's favourite and Elanor tells her to stop. What is the tune and is it possible to find music for it? It's not the 'Weep You No More Sad Fountains' one.
