I can't stand to see a thread about Child Ballads pass!

The best place I konw of (there could certainly, be others)to look for recordings is the Folk Music File (http://milton.mse.jhu.edu:8001/research/folkindex/tocframe.htm)

However, they don't show anything under Gil Brenton. You'll have to check variant titles which would include Cospatrick, Lord Dingwall, Lord Brangwill, Lord Benwill and Bothwell. Those are the ones listed in Child. There could be others.

Good luck!
