  • Twas in the Moon of Wintertime – Brass Octet

    This, the first Canadian Christmas carol, was originally written in the Huron language using the melody of a 16th century French carol, Une Jeune Pucelle. This arrangement is as expressive as the story it depicts and the plaintive melody is elegantly scored and always full of promise.

    The lyrics are:

    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 wand'ring hunters heard the hymn:
    Jesus your king is born, Jesus is born.
    In excelsis gloria!

    Marissa Benedict, Larry Hall – Trumpet
    Andy Pelletier, Bruce Hudson – Horn
