Please help me name this tune. It was featured in "Summer Games" for the Commodore 64, but it's not the Olympic theme song nor a national anthem (or is it?).

I'm pretty sure it's a Scottish traditional called 'Redwing'.

It's by the composer Mouret, and is better known as the theme from PBS' Masterpiece Theatre.

Trumpet Fanfare, by Mouret. Also known as the Masterpiece Theater theme song. Here's an orchestral version:
