Christmas Carol

I have just rediscovered an absolutely wonderful Christmas song – one you very rarely hear – Mary’s Boy Child/Oh My Lord

My favorite version is by Boney M – a group from Jamaica, Montserrat and Aruba – it has a great Caribbean beat – just right for Christmas in the tropics!

I also have versions by Oslo Gospel Choir, Andy Williams, Charlotte Church, Jim Reeves, Harry Belafonte, and Anne Murray. Even Mahalia Jackson sang it – but I don’t have that version… yet.

It is a song about what Christmas is supposed to be – not Santas, Frosty Snowmen, Roasting Chestnuts, Jingling Bells, Red Nosed Reindeer or Missing Teeth!

Hear it on youtube:

Boney M. – Mary’s Boy Child/Oh My Lord (1978)

Another really lovely version is Harry Belafonte’s
