Henry Jenner is the man who could rightly be called the Father of Cornish Revival, Jenner undertook researches throughout Cornwall, interviewing people who still recalled the language. He also became fluent in Breton and was made a Bard in the Breton Gorsedd in 1901, this was the same year he created the first Celtic Cornish Society.
In 1903 he delivered a speech in Cornish to a Breton audience and was astonished to find that much of his speech was understood! The following year he submitted Cornwall’s application for membership in the Celtic Congress, not an easy task, as many claimed Cornwall was not Celtic. Jenner’s case was powerful and Cornwall was accepted. The following year he produced this classic work.
