Huron Carol

Due to copyright, it is not possible to post the score here; Karen will have printed copies.

Note from Karen: I took a close look at all the parts and chords, and I think tenors can all sing one part together this year. That will make it easier to learn/support each other. There are otherwise as many as 3 tenor parts — but we don’t have 1 singer on a part like Chanticleer.

Here is a performance by Chanticleer.
