I am trying, on behalf of a friend, to find out the composer and time period
of the Tune "Dark Island".

One of my recordings says "Trad.", the other "McLachlan". What does this
really mean? As to the words, did they exist before the tune or were they
created at the same time as the tune? Were the words always in English or
did they appear in Gaelic?

I would appreciate anyone sending me an e-mail directly, if they have any
information. Thank You.
