One of the loveliest of all carols, the Huron Carol was written by Father Jean de Brébeuf, a French Catholic priest who settled among the Huron people in the early 1600s. Despite his missionary zeal, Brébeuf was sensitive to the Hurons's beliefs. He wrote the carol in Huron and incorporated the Huron landscape and flora and fauna into the telling of the Christmas story. Ian Wallace brings his gorgeous landscapes and cultural sensitivity to this beautiful and unusual Christmas song, which makes a thoughtful gift for both children and adults.
