The tune used on Sharpe by John Tams is slightly different from the one I use - mine has more what I have heard described as ornamentation - shorter notes and more of them, plus the beat is more emphatic and the effect less wistfull.

Plus the words are less philosophical.

I learned 'Queen Anne' in the chorus.

Sean Bean was indeed the pin up of the Vicar of Dibley, and I remember at least one daydream (of hers) in which he figured.
