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.
