5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Simple, Amazing Rendition of Christmas Classic, 3 Dec 2010
This review is from: Silent Night, Holy Night (MP3 Download)
Listening to Mahalia Jackson sing "Silent Night" gives me chills. She finds it. She gets it. She never oversings the song, holding back, making sure the song is never about her. Rather than say, "Look at my skills," she is calling us out, asking, "Worship with me the child of God."

The music is sparse. It starts with piano and bells, but mostly, it is Jackson with a soft layer of bells and a humming choir. It sounds like it was performed without an audience in a large cathedral.

I fully recommend, "Silent Night, Holy Night" as sung by Mahalia Jackson.
