Considered Canada's first Christmas Carol, the melody of the Huron Carol is an excellent piece for introducing or reviewing aeolian mode on barred Orff instruments and for discussing early Canadian music and early Canadians. The melody can be easily sung or performed on a soprano/tenor recorder. The piece lends itself well to creative movement. Note that the title of the score says La Pentatonic. The music is not Pentatonic but can be adapted. The music is in the aeolian mode in the elemental style of Orff.
