Shrink, My Electricity and Locked Away are from her hand, thats all I know. But I bet there's plenty more.

Alone was mainly hers I think for the melody.

From what I see at the Gathering's website only My Electricity & Locked Away have Anneke as the writer for the music and lyrics…
Most of their albums with Anneke state "All music by the Gathering. All lyrics by Anneke van Giersbergen". Only on HTMAP? are there separate entries per song about who wrote the music and the lyrics....
To me it doesn't really matter much but it would surprise me if Anneke wrote most of Souvenirs. That album sounds so much as a group effort. If Air by Agua de Annique is an 'Anneke' album, then Souvenirs sure doesn't sound like one...

I dont really think Souvenirs is mostly from Anneke... from the interviews back then, it was said a lots of ideas came from Frank, which would not surprise me regarding the amount of keys/samples layers.
And if you'd look for connection between Souvenirs and AdA, You Learn About it seems to be the closest (and it's imo the weakest song of Souvenirs)

lyrics? everything was written by her... even if some directions of lyrics were discussed with the band... you have the credits of the lyrics in all TG albums anyway

I have a suspicion that Anneke has written the vocal melodies as well as the lyrics and the rest of the band has written the vast majority of the music.

By the way, you reminded me Anneke should had played Shrink in her live here, it would had matched the acoustic live nicely.
