Misc. Comments

  • The "Huron Carol" (or "'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime") is a Canadian Christmas hymn (Canada's oldest Christmas song), written in 1643 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 a traditional French folk song, "Une Jeune Pucelle" ("A Young Maid").
  • The tag has been derived as follows: since the exact original instrumentation is not known, but undoubtedly involved multiple voices, and since folk material accompaniment can vary widely, or not be used at all, this has been tagged for voices only. There is no language tag for either Huron or Wendat, probably because it is nearly extinct today as a language, though some younger people are trying to learn it to keep it alive. Most Hurons in Canada today speak French. Therefore, it has not been tagged for language yet, and possibly won't be. French might be considered as an alternate tag, but this can be discussed if someone uploads a vocal version.
