|All Souls’ Day is a day of alms giving and prayers for the dead. The
intent is for the living to assist those in purgatory. Many western
churches annually observe All Souls’ Day on November 2 and many eastern
churches celebrate it prior to Lent and the day before Pentecost.
What do people do?
... All Souls’ Day is not a nationwide public holiday but is observed
in some Christian churches in countries such as Australia, Canada, the
United Kingdom and the United States.

Thank you so much, Dale! How did you remember how I love that song?!? That's a lovely arrangement; he has an incredible range! I think I sang it once myself in a coffee shop in Norfolk where my friends and I would go to sing folk songs back when I was a freshman in college. Possibly. Maybe. Possibly maybe. If I did, it was "Fifty Years Ago".
