HURON CAROL

arr. Ed Henderson

Home > Composers > Ed Henderson > HURON CAROL

featuring the Elektra Women’s Choir
Quite an unusual arrangement of this Canadian Christmas favourite. Accompaniment is for piano and/or a “combo” of instruments (string quartet, perc.,2 guitars, bass) and calls for a “driving rhythm” and has a very strong jazz feel.

LYRICS

‘Twas in the moon of wintertime when all the birds had fled 
That mighty Gitchi Manitou sent angel choirs instead;
Before their light the stars grew dim and wondering hunters heard the hymn, 
Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

Within a lodge of broken bark the tender babe was found;
A ragged robe of rabbit skin enwrapped his beauty round
But as the hunter braves drew nigh the angel song rang loud and high
Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

O children of the forest free, O sons of Manitou
The holy Child of earth and heaven is born today for you.
Come kneel before the radiant boy who brings you beauty, peace and joy.
Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.
