Gwavas Lake LP

So many of the songs written for Brenda by Richard Gendall were about boats, the sea and fishing, and the fishing industry is such an important one in Cornwall, that Brenda decided to produce an album exclusively with 'Cornish Songs of the Sea'.  


By this time she had sung with many Cornish choirs and bands, and her great friends in Four Lanes Male Voice Choir feature on this album, together with Richard Gendall and Dave Penhale. The lyrics are printed on the cover sleeve at the back, and the cover photo is the famous painting, 'Fish Sale on a Cornish Beach', by Newlyn artist, Stanhope Forbes.
