"Jesous Ahatonhia"

The "Huron Carol" or "Twas in the Moon of Wintertime" is a Christmas hymn, written in 1643 by St. Jean de Brébeuf SJ, a Catholic missionary at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in Canada. Brébeuf wrote the lyrics in the native language of the Huron people.

The song's melody is a traditional French folk song, "Une Jeune Pucelle"* perhaps Jheanne d'Arc.(?)

Dieu le Roy!
