And all in the morning (Derbyshire)

St. Leornard's Church, Bretforton, Worcestershire, where the Rev. W. H. Shawcross was Vicar at the time he published the Old Castleton Carols

This carol was collected from a Mr. James Hall of Castleton, Derbyshire, by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1908. The text is found in W.B. Shawcross' A Garland of the Old Castleton Christmas Carols (1904). The carol also appears to have been known in Norfolk. It would be suitable for Candlemas as well as Christmas.
