Larry Shackley’s mastery of diverse musical styles really shines in this joyous gospel medley of traditional spirituals. Opening in a relaxed swing with Mary Had a Baby, it kicks into high gear with Jesus, Oh, What a Wonderful Child. Next, a soloist (opt. unison women) sings What Child Is This?, in a free gospel ad lib style. The choir responds in a rousing finale that mixes all three melodies. Highly recommended!
