La Grande Cornouaillaise Summary

La Grande Cornouaillaise was recorded by Brenda for the French market in 1980, as her career on the continent was going stellar. It was produced by Burlington Records in Hitchin in Hertfordshire, number BURL007, and is a 33rpm LP. The guitarist was Dave Penhale - still playing and living in Cornwall.

Tracks are:
Side 1:
Ma Chere Cornouaille: My Dear Cornwall (there is a 'Cornwall' in Brittany)
Le Chouchenn: (a Breton alcoholic honey drink)
Tamar: the story of the Battle of Hingston Down in 936, when the Danes helped the Cornish
An Duren: a favourite Breton song about the turtle-dove
Plougastel: a region in Brittany much loved by Brenda
Little Eyes: popular Cornish song
Side 2:
Les Demoiselles de Guilvinec: the Breton name for langoustines, which Brenda adored
Hello, How Do You Do?
Can Yffarn: Breton hymn sung in Cornish
Chere Patrie: the young man must fulfil his national service, and bids farewell
Kernow Ha Breizh: written in 1978 to cement the bond of friendship between Cornwall and Brittany
Mon Dieu/La Belle Histoire d'Amour: a dedication from Brenda to Edith Piaf

The condition of these is good, believed unused, with slight fading on the cover edges and the odd light corner crease, but no damage.

Rarity: Uncommon, as with most Burlington albums.
