Legend has it (for the romantics amongst you) that late in the 12th Century when King Richard I (the "Lionheart") was captured in Europe and held against his will the wandering minstrel, Blondel,  went to search for him. Singing the first verse of one of the Kings favourite songs one day Blondel heard the second verse being sung back to him from the window of a nearby castle and so he found Richard who, with the help of the Pope, was eventually ransomed and returned to England.
