    I would like to know the name of the song/musical number that was played in Episode 108 when Claire is running to Craigh Na Dun at the same time Frank is at the Stone Circle (right before she is captured by the Red Coats and taken to Randall). I’ve heard it before in another episode. It is a beautiful number and I’d love to find it.
