I'm looking for both the lyrics and the melody to this Cornish song by Thomas Tonkin (late 17th - early 18th century). Apparently it's about King James II of England and Prince William of Orange. I would also appreciate a translation if it's available. Thanks.

John Tonkin, not Thomas. And, I think the song is called "Kanna Kernuak". I'll have to go dig around.
