"By the way, as to the music, it is indeed more Irish than English."

I've not seen the film but the Scottish Gaelic singer Kathleen MacInnes seemingly also features. It is strange that they should choose singing in Scottish Gaelic for a quintissentially English film! I wonder if the Celtic connection was maybe inspired by Clannad's music in the old TV series "Robin of Sherwood" though I don't think they actually used Irish Gaelic songs in that.
