For the season (and because it was just played on the radio ...)

"Huron Carol" sung by Tom Jackson ... one of the best recordings of the oldest Canadian Christmas song. Original Wyandot lyrics were written by Jean de Brébeuf (who all Canadian kids learned about in history class) in the 1640s. Jackson is singing the 1926 Anglicized version. Plus a little background to why his performance of this song is special.
