OK, Here's the scoop:  I met Lord Aegid at Border Raids 1992.  I taped the
bardic circle that we had and passed the tape along to Baroness Julitta des
Cheveaux, MSoB who promptly included it (and a few others of his) on her
learning tapes.  The song is his, he wrote it and I have it on tape in his
voice.  Unfortunately, he promptly dropped off the face of the Earth and we
haven't been able to find him since.
