It is true, this CD is a collection of songs sung by Mahalia Jackson, with a variety of accompaniments. Most of the songs are more reflective, "Walking to Jerusalem" being the one lively, upbeat gospel song, with back-up singers.
In the song "He's My Light", Ms. Jackson's voice is clearer and younger sounding. This is one highlight of the CD.
The disappointing feature of the CD is that the title is "Christmas Songs", when, in fact, there are only three (3) Christmas songs out of the 12 included on the CD! I have seen this often in Europe, in these kind of collections. A more honest title would have been "Mahalia's Gospel Songs" (including 3 Christmas songs).
