Thread Name: DTStudy: The Dark Island
Subject: RE: DTStudy: The Dark Island
I think that everything relevant (and a great deal that is not) has already been said several times over in the course of the discussions indicated above, to which I would refer anyone considering posting to this thread. There is really only one useful question which remains: is there any hard evidence that the tune pre-dates MacLachlan? We have so far been offered a number of anecdotes, but no proof. It would be nice to have that matter settled.
