Wonderfully organised site.

The instrumental score playing when Veronica finds the note from her mother is called "Left Behind" and it's by the show's composer, Josh Kramon.

It can be found here:

Sorry, it's not "Left Behind". It's actually called "Music Box"

La Femme d'Argent is a beautiful song that worked perfectly with the unaired opening sequence. Lorelai, it definitely sounds like Cemetery Party from The Virgin Suicides CD hwich is also by Air

It's listed here in "A Trip To The Dentist" :)
