From the recording Kubla Khan in Xanadu Did...
This music and lyrics date back to 1982 and was called “Eloise.” The E in Eloise sounded abrupt so I changed it to “Heloise” which sounds more feminine. The routine romance lyrics needed replacing; more about the title character. Knowing nothing about any Heloise, I got online and looked her up. And there I discovered the tragic love story of Abelard and Heloise; two well-educated people, brought together by their passion, and then separated by her uncle's vengeance. The first section consists of an intro leading into Heloise’s [verse] represented by flute and violins 1 where she professes her love for Abelard, but with caution for she knows her uncle would not be happy if he were to learn of their affair and yet she is optimistic.
The second intro introduces us to Abelard’s [verse], represented by the trumpets and F-horns, who too professes his love for Heloise, but with optimistic caution.
The first section ends and is replaced with a tribute to the 60s British band, Status Quo and their hit, “Pictures of Matchstick Men.” Heloise’s uncle, Canon Fulbert, learns of their relationship and eventually her pregnancy. This segues into a galloping sequence where they eventually marry in secrecy. But her uncle believes Abelard has cast her off, forcing to become a nun. Heloise’s uncle and his kinsmen pay Abelard a visit. The galloping sequence cuts to an abrupt end in sympathy with Abelard’s short-coming.
