Ian HP Souling Song - how old? (15) Souling Song - how old? 15 May 99


On the DT database is the SOULING SONG as below. How old is it? Does anyone have more info?

A soul, a soul, a soul cake Please, good missus, a soul cake An apple, a pear, a plum or a cherry Any good thing to make us all merry One for Peter, two for Paul Three for Him who made us all

God Bless the master of this house, the mistress also And all the little children who around your table grow Likewise your men and maidens, your cattle and your store And all that dwells within your gates we wish you ten times more

The lanes are very dirty and my shoes are very thin I've got a little pocket I can put a penny in If you haven't got a penny, a ha' penny will do If you haven't got a ha' penny, then God bless you

Sung for All Souls (November 1). A soul cake was left for the spirits that left their graves on Samhain (Halloween)
