For almost two thousand years people around the worldhave been gathering to celebrate the Christmas season. These celebrations areas varied as their countries of origin but share at least two common threads - thebirth of Christ, and a desire to celebrate this event in music.
In the town of Elora, in the Canadian province of Ontario,people usually find themselves gathering amidst snowdrifts and impending winterto celebrate the Christmas season. Music is always a centrepiece as they drawupon many centuries and vocal traditions, all celebrating the wonder and mystery of this season. Carols such as Silent Night, O Come all ye Faithful, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing are sung throughout the world andneed little introduction. Other music on this disc is less well known. TheHuron Carol has the distinction of being one of the first pieces of Christmas musicwritten in North America. It was composed by the missionary Father Jean de Brebeufin about 1641 as he was working among the Huron Indians in Ontario, not so farfrom where many of the Elora Festival singers now make their homes.
