Presto Abracadabra Threadisimus Revivify

Ok, I've found this tune variously attributed to McLean (as The Gael) and Clannad (as "I Will Find You"); one person said it's called "The Kiss" and another told us it's the "Elk Hunt" song. Just about everyone else calls it "the song from the last of the mohicans movie".

Can anyone say if it's composed or traditional??? And what it's really called? (if it's one of those Kesh/Kerrigan deals, that's fine too!)

Reynaud and I learned it at the request of a cast member at the CT Ren Faire, and it's been incredibly popular.

Thanks in Advance,
V

PS, I agree about Dougie McLean--amazing talent.
