Catalogue No: EME712
Composer: Ernest Bucalossi
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Ernest Bucalossi (1863–1933) was a light-music composer, remembered solely for this one enduring (and endearing) lollipop. Himself a London theatre conductor, he was the second son of theatre conductor/composer Procida Bucalossi who migrated to London from Italy. Ernest studied at the Royal Academy of Music and in 1881 began his theatre career by deputising for his father. He went on to compose for a variety of theatrical purposes. The jaunty, characteristic piece is one of those pieces that perfectly exemplifies its title.
