Description

The Huron Carol is Canada’s oldest Christmas song, written by the Jesuit missionary Jean de Brebeuf while stationed in Ontario’s Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in 1642. While Brebeuf wrote the original lyrics in the Hurons’ native language, the well-known English translation was written in 1926, beginning with the line, “‘Twas in the moon of wintertime…” This arrangement depicts the stillness of a winter’s night with its slow, plaintive melody and contemplative rhythms.
