Subject: RE: Little girl's song from movie;The Piano?
I think I put three versions of the tune on my "Embro, Embro" website. The main theme from "The Piano" (Gloomy Winter) is also there - like the whole scenario of the movie, it was plagiarized without attribution or any royalties being paid, and in the case of the movie's story, the original was still in copyright so they ought to have been.
There will be zillions of other copies of "Flowers of the Forest" out there.
Since I find this rather annoying I'll give the link to what Campion ripped off: The Story of a New Zealand River (1938).
