This evolution of the “Huron Carol” is a hauntingly far cry from the familiar hymn version of this folk melody.
It is a compelling SATB version that allows the choir to express the mystery of this unique French Canadian text. Flute and oboe parts are not incidental but inherently important throughout.
This piece concludes with a fitting instrumental coda, which seems to describe the tranquil Christmas night.
