    In a BBC TV documentary which was dedicated to his Winter Song project, Sting explained the background to this song. It was he said, a begging song, a very old English song which originated in the ritual of baking soul cakes. These were made to feed the dead on Halloween - in the hope that it would sate their hunger until the following year. As, obviously, the dead did not generally have much of an appetite, the poor and hungry got the idea that they could beg for them. http://pabunnyhk.wordpress.com/2009/10/31/soul-cake/

    I like this song no matter if it's sung by Sting or Peter, Paul & Mary. The preferred version depends on the mood an the season.... The album is a real winters dream.

    Great to hear proper English folk doing the rounds,. Always good to hear fresh sounding winter tunes to spice up the cold, dark months.

    I'd like to recommend to anyone who enjoys this album by Sting to discover the many recordings by Kathryn Tickell who plays on the album, a great fiddler and northumbrian piper (english bagpipes).

    yes, great song, proper music....but hey, why the hell do so many people in the U.S. think just because there is a fiddle and folk stuff it's Irish ??? i mean, come on...like as though jigs and hornpipes and stuff only comes from Ireland !?! ha ha...! Irish music is great and i love it, but folk music like that is in fact from all over Northern England, Scotland *and* Ireland, not only Ireland OK. The Soul Cake song is well known as being from the north-west England, (which still retains many celtic roots) and can be found in various versions over northern england and also of course the 'souling' tradition which goes with it, which is the source of 'trick or treat' at halloween. There are many songs and tunes and traditions which people say are Irish which are in fact originally from northern England or Scotland...wish people would stop the simplistic 'Mickey mouse'/hollywood view of what it is to mean 'Celtic' !

    A Peter, Paul and Mary version from way back when, but this is much better! Reaquainted with it just this morning on CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood! Can you imagine listening to Sting live in a church? How amazing would that be?
