Iesous Ahatonnia - The Huron Carol - Merry Christmas from the Stairwell Carollers


                Ottawa choir, The Stairwell Carollers, perform "Iesous Ahatonnia" - The Huron Carol - in a new arrangement by Pierre Massie.  

Pete found the original Huron words for his new arrangement of The Huron Carol, commonly believed to be "the first Canadian Christmas carol".

Here are the words to the Huron Carol as transcribed at http://www.wyandot.org/carol.htm
