Unlike her Christmas with Mahalia Jackson album, Mahalia Sings Songs of Christmas! has a large number of traditional holiday tracks, such as "Silent Night," "Joy to the World," "O Come All Ye Faithful," "The First Noel," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "O Little Town of Bethlehem," and "O Holy Night." The CD also features songs like "Mary's Little Boy Child," "Go Tell It on the Mountain," "No Room at the Inn," and "Sweet Little Jesus Boy," and Mahalia Jackson's classic voice makes this disc a worthwhile addition to any holiday music collection. ~ Gina Boldman

Mama Mahalia..the First Lady of the Spiritual Music Lover: from Franklin, Virginia -- October, 11, 2005

Nobody before her..nobody after her..nobody like her. Mahalia Jackson brought every listener right into the very presence of her Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. Hymn singer & jazzbo alike would sit enveloped in a tangible cloud of glory as her deep soul-cry would bellow forth such heart-stirring unforgettable favorites such as It Is Well With My Soul, Elijah Rock & Didn't It Rain.
A joyous thunder seemed to resonate in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to sit and watch Mahalia worship as only she could. Whether singing in a concert hall, wailing at the Newport Jazz Fest or compelling the masses (via black wax) to draw near to the Little Town Of Bethlehem..Mama Mahalia never ceased to pour her heart and soul into every note that flowed out of her being. The song and the spirit that drew in the sinner & saint back then continues to draw us in today. This offering is the ultimate Christmas that keeps on giving & giving & giving. Let Mahalia lead you to the manger & to the one that she served (in her personal & professional life) for the entirety of her life..somebody say, "Amen!"
