NB: CDs ONLY AVAILABLE... The new - the only! - songbook of Brenda Wootton songs, all written or transcribed by her associate, fellow Cornish Bard, Richard Gendall, in the Cornish language: 'Brenda Yn Kernewek'. Here are 33 songs in Kernewek - 31 sung by Brenda, and taken from practice tapes, studio and concert recordings, and her existing albums - and 2 from guest artists. (NB For the purposes of displaying all tracks, the 2 CDs are listed as separate albums.
Richard Gendall wrote over 460 songs for Brenda, about a third of them in Cornish - she never had time to learn and sing them all, and for many of those we still have the music, the lyrics, the manuscripts. So we invited Hilary Coleman and Neil Davey to record one of these previously unperformed numbers - 'Hedhough E Genough', and another, 'Pryas Awen' has been contributed by Gwenno Saunders, the multi-lingual Welsh performer who has already done so much for the Cornish language.
The songs are on 2 CDs. The songbook containing the music, and the lyrics in three languages is not available for sale, the Richard Gendall estate having refused permission due to the fact that SWF Cornish appeared in the book (as well as Richard's original Cornish lyrics, and English). There is also a history of Brenda and Richard's association and a short biography. The lyrics and printed music can be found online in the Cornish National Music Archive.
