Galanthea

#1
Does anyone know the origins of Galanthea? It's a jaunty little ditty and was often played on parades by the Band of the Devon and Dorsets but I can't find anything about it on the web.

Try looking up Galathea or Galatea. WS Gilbert (half of Gilbert and Sullivan) wrote a musical Pygmalion and Galatea and this might be the source of the tune you are after.
