The haunting melody, that forms the chorus of this song, started life in 1892 as an 'Andantino' for Organ by Edwin Henry Lemare.

Its opening phrase had an even earlier birth, however, bearing as it does an uncanny resemblance to that of the Adagio of Mozart's 'Hunt' quartet. This may explain the arranger's musical treatment, his original marking in hot pursuit, and the dedication to the celebrated Pizza Express quartet at Dean Street, Soho, London; for in medieval times this area was farming and hunting land, it's name deriving from the old hunting cry of "So-ho!"
