Delius in North England - at the end of the 1800's

from Delius: A Life in Letters 1862-1908, page 379:

Just before Christmas the waits used to come round in the early hours of the morning and play their strange tune - I still remember the melody - and early on Christmas mornings the choral singers would sing "Christians awake!" in the garden outside our house.
