Best Answer

The Ride of the Valkyries is actually a piece from the beginning of the third act of Wagner's Die Walküre. The piece is sung by the eight Valkyrie sisters of Brünnhilde, which may be the name you're looking for. "Ho-jo-to-ho!" is Brunnhilde's war-cry in act 2 of Richard Wagner's 'Die Walkure'. As already answered 'The ride of the walkuries' is the opening of act 3 of the same Opera.
