Ian HP Souling Song - how old? (15) RE: Souling Song - how old? 16 May 99

Thanks, folks. I've managed to find a great deal of stuff on the net about souling and soul cakes, which helps me a little, locating the custom as early as the 10th century. What intrigues me is this: what is our earliest evidence for the song to date it? Is there any evidence for the antiquity of the song itself?
