HURON CAROL

SATB or SSAA a cappella | text by Jesse Edgar Middleton

Evocative and beautiful, this traditional carol resets the Nativity story in the wilds of Canada, where "within a lodge of broken bark the tender babe was found; a ragged robe of rabbit skin enwrapp'd His beauty round."

My setting captures the cold majesty of the frozen landscape, as 'chiefs from far' bring gifts of fox and beaver pelt.
