Brenda Yn Kernewek
Sorry - no longer available
My mother, Brenda Wootton, dearly loved to sing. In particular, she dearly loved to sing about Cornwall and all things Cornish - the history, the legends, the countryside, the traditions, and the people.
I'm proud to present to you the latest creation from the Brenda Wootton archives!
Released in July 2021, 'Brenda Yn Kernewek' is the first and only songbook of Brenda, singing 31 songs written (or transcribed) for her by Cornish Bard Richard Gendall in the 1970s and 80s.
The book contains the music and the lyrics for each song - in Richard's original Cornish, in newly-translated SWF (Standard Written Form) and in English.
There are 2 extra, previously unheard, songs contributed by guest artists: Hilary Coleman and Neil Davy performing 'Hedhough E Genough', and the remarkable multi-lingual Welsh performer Gwenno Saunders performing 'Pryas Awen' (courtesy of Heavenly Recordings).
The book with CDs is available from the shop at £20 + £3 UK p&p.
