Compounding the matter is songs that are derived from a variety of sources. Take the song "John of Dreams", for instance - It appears in the Ossian books as an Irish song, but the tune is staight out of Tchaikovsky's ^th Symphony. So is it Irish or Russian? Ultimately, does it really matter WHAT we call this stuff as long as it's performed by those of us who care about it?
