Allison Crowe’s gorgeous voice brings tidings of comfort and joy with “Souling” – her 11th full album release. Here's the first track - a traditional song for souling.

Allison Crowe’s gorgeous voice brings tidings of comfort and joy with “Souling” – her 11th full album release.

The artist, one of our greatest living musicians, singer-songwriters and performers, has always created authentic music.


With this newest song set her voice is heard wholly a cappella.

The songs themselves have a purity of expression – a 21st century take on music of faith and spirit – sounds and themes aired by carollers and soulers of old.

The genesis of “Souling” is found in the bond Allison Crowe’s formed with the creative family at Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador. Founded in 1979, this professional theatre company presents a dynamic and diverse repertoire of plays and maintains, as well, a strong commitment to youth theatre in the Atlantic Canada community.

For these past three Summers TNL’s engaged Crowe as Musical Director of “Newfoundland Vinyl” - a perennial favourite at the annual Gros Morne Theatre Festival. Following another hit season at GMTF, in late August of this year TNL Artistic Associate SaraH McDonald invited the Corner Brook, NL-based musician to serve the same role with a vibrant production of “A Christmas Carol”.

The Adaptation of this classic Charles Dickens story by playwright Jeff Pitcher, TNL’s Artistic Director, excited Crowe’s musical imagination – as did the desire of McDonald, the play’s Director, to incorporate songs in the style of Victorian Era carollers.

So inspired, Allison Crowe immersed herself in curating the music for the abundantly-talented, multi-aged, choir of singers who’ll perform in “A Christmas Carol” at the Corner Brook Arts and Culture Centre from November 27th – 30th, 2014.

This artistic process of selection and arrangement led to her recording solo versions of those songs that will receive another distinct breath of life from the TNL vocal ensemble.

(In parallel fashion, the first season’s run of “Newfoundland Vinyl” brought forth Allison Crowe’s album of the same nam
Soul Cake
Traditional - as performed by Allison Crowe

Oooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh,
Oooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh…

A soul cake, 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.

A soul cake, a soul cake
please good missus a soul cake.
One for Peter, two for Paul
and three for Him that made us all.

God bless the master of this house
and the mistress also,
and all the little children
that ’round your table grow.

The cattle in your stable,
the dogs at your front door,
and all that dwell within your gates
we'll wish you ten times more.

A soul cake, 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.

A soul cake, a soul cake
please good missus a soul cake.
One for Peter, two for Paul
and three for Him that made us all.

Go down into the cellar
and see what you can find.
If the barrels are not empty
we'll hope that you'll be kind.

We'll hope that you'll be kind
with your apple and your pear.
And we'll come no more a-soulin'
’til Christmas time next year.

A soul cake, a soul cake
please good missus a soul cake.
An apple, a plum, a peach or a cherry
any good thing to make us all merry.

A soul cake, a soul cake
please good missus a soul cake.
One for Peter, two for Paul
and three for Him that made us all.

The streets are very dirty.
Me shoes are very thin.
I have a little pocket
to put a penny in.

If you haven't got a penny
an half-a-penny will do.
If you haven't got an half-a-penny
well, God bless you.

A soul cake, 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.

A soul cake, a soul cake
please good missus a soul cake.
One for Peter, two for Paul
and three for Him that made us all.
