Spiritual Christmas Review

by Jason Birchmeier

Spiritual Christmas features Mahalia Jackson performing a variety of holiday favorites. Some of the performances include "Silent Night," "If I Could Help Somebody," "Holding My Savior's Hand," and "This Is My Faith," along with seven others. Most of these songs are highly spiritual and relatively unknown outside of the church. As a result, this album doesn't feel as festive as some may wish, sounding instead like a praise & worship album. Nonetheless, it should please those who appreciate Jackson's work and those who prefer their holiday music to reflect the religious element of the season.
