In the (superb) film Babette's Feast, during the scene where Babette is contemplating what to do with her new money, one of the sisters plays a simple tune on the piano - 3/4 time, melody is G G G | G FE | E F E| E D| along with thirds below. Rhythm is | x x x | x. x\ x | x x. x\| o x | This piece is not listed in the credits and definitely doesn't sound like it's by per norgard. It's not the hymn about sand in the hourglass which I've already identified. It sounds like a minuet or some other classical piano piece. I've tried various online services to identify the piece with no success. Any help you could give would be fantastic! Thanks!

I didn't realize Spanish was so widely spoken in Denmark... but I don't recognize the piece either. Sorry.
