A couple of things you should know about this....
1. Martin Galway is James Galway's nephew. Martin's Dad (James Glaways brother) is also a flautist and as far as I remember he taught it too.
2. It is not totally beyond the bounds of reason that this tune was lifted by the LOTR composer, even if it was done subliminally. There is a rather strange clique of people who remix a lot of the old C64 tunes and share them round the net. This is especially big in Scandinavia where there are entire radio stationes devoted to this type of music. Also in this music scene there are a group of bands who play this music live, recent gigs have been in Brighton, London, Manchester, Frome and Copenhagen. The four main bands in this scene are English, Swedish, Danish and Finnish just to emphasise the Scandinavian influence.
