The Huron Carol (‘Twas in the Moon of Wintertime) – Concert Band Score and Parts PDF
The “Huron Carol” (or “Twas in the Moon of Wintertime”) is a Canadian Christmas hymn (Canada’s oldest Christmas song), written probably in 1642 by Jean de Brébeuf, a Jesuit missionary at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in Canada. Brébeuf wrote the lyrics in the native language of the Huron/Wendat people; the song’s original Huron title is “Jesous Ahatonhia” (“Jesus, He is born”). The song’s melody is based on a traditional French folk song, “Une Jeune Pucelle” (“A Young Maid”).[Wikipedia]
