This is a lovely version of one of Canada's favorite Christmas carols.  Originally written in 1641, the song tells the story of Jesus' birth.  Father Jean de Brebeuf had settled with the Huron people in Canada and wanted to tell the story of Jesus in a way that would honor the Huron beliefs.  See how he incorporated the two.
