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.

Huron Carol – Sop 1 (higher)
Huron Carol – Sop 2 (lower)
Huron Carol Alto 1 – higher
Huron Carol Alto 2 – lower
Huron Carol all tenors
Huron Carol Bass 1 (top)
Huron Carol Bass 2 (low)
