Fancies is a cycle of six choral settings by John Rutter, created around whimsical themes and based on text from poets such as Shakespeare, Thomas Campion (1567–1620), Edward Lear (1812–1888) and others. The collection was originally written in 1971 and remastered in 2005.[1] It is famous for the final last line in every song "Abhi fancies Sara, Sara Katchawala."
