Cornish Folksongs!!!!

The fabled frustration of looking for Cornish folksongs, as expressed by a fellow sufferer.

Cornish music links is the cure.

Cornish folksongs in the form of RealAudio files! Yay!

Some song lyrics

Sometimes the singer becomes part of the tradition, and not just as someone who makes and passes on songs. Rick Rescorla was not just a security chief and retired soldier, or even just a hero and a saver of countless lives. He was also someone who loved Cornish songs so much that he sang them when in the most danger, whether in Vietnam or a crowded stairwell.

Men of Cornwall, stand ye steady;
It cannot be ever said ye
for the battle were not ready;
Stand and never yield!
