It is generally recognised as one of the band's most well-known songs, using a 40-piece choir, with the LP version of the song lasting for nearly 11 minutes (the single versions are substantially shorter). Eldritch's lyrics concern his previous band members leaving The Sisters of Mercy to form The Mission.
The track was featured in the 2013 science-fiction comedy film, The World's End, with star Simon Pegg playing a 40-something who had been a "goth"/alternative rock fan in the 1980s as a youth and one who still styled himself on The Sisters of Mercy front man, Andrew Eldritch. The 7" version/single edit (4:27) appears on the soundtrack to the film.

In the last few years before he died of syphilis at the age of 31, Franz Schubert experienced one of the most prolific periods of creative genius humankind has ever seen. This quartet is one of the fruits of that period. In the first movement, Schubert develops a simple descending-scale motif into an intense outpouring of grief. The quartet takes its name from the theme of the second movement, a song which Schubert wrote when he was twenty. In its quartet incarnation, Schubert takes the simple melody through a whole range of moods, building to an impassioned frenzy and then relaxing.
