For lever or pedal harp.

The Huron Carol (Jesous Ahatonhia) is the first Canadian Christmas carol and possibly the first of the New World. The words in the Huron language are believed to have been written by Father Jean de Brebeuf, a Jesuit missionary who lived among the Hurons from 1626 to 1649.

Mary Muckle has arranged this beautiful carol for voice and harp. The vocal line is also suitable for melody instrument, such as flute or recorder. This arrangement also works for two harps, with the easier Harp 1 part playing the melody and Harp 2 on the more complex accompaniment.

Mary has set one verse in the original Huron language, two verses in French and three verses in English. In Verse 1 she has used some "x" notations indicating that the harpist should tap on the harp soundboard or sound box with the right hand to suggest a drum. An alternate option is for the second musician to play a hand drum.

This carol is in the key of G minor (2 flats) with no lever or pedal changes required. There are no fingerings. The range of the vocal part is one octave, from the D to D.

This 9-page PDF for advanced beginner to intermediate harp players includes 5 pages of music.
