Features Song Lyrics for Odetta's Christmas Spirituals album. Odetta - Christmas Spirituals Album Lyrics. 1. Virgin Mary Had One Son Lyrics.
Odetta renders classics like "Go Tell it On The Mountain" entirely unlike anyone else. And yet, it all sounds completely natural. Odetta is an artist whose career really thumbs its nose to all cultural essentialists out there. Born in the American South, grown up in California, yet with a fan base mosly in the North-East. Trained as a contralto opera singer in the Marian Anderson mould – that vibrato could come from nowhere else – yet ending up in folk music, a genre obsessed with vocal simplicity. A proud sophisticate in a movement where African-Americans were almost universally coerced into fake primitiveness.

She says these songs are traditional spirituals, neither purely African nor American, but songs that emerged from the sufferings of slavery.
