raredance Lyr Req: Mary's Little Boy Child (Jester Hairston) (31) RE: Mary's Little Boy Child / Stille Nacht 06 Dec 02


"Mary's Boy Child" is recorded on "To Wish You A Merry Christmas" by Harry Belafonte (1962 RCA)

The Belafonte Christmas album from 1962 credits Hairston on the disc. The liner notes by Watson Wylie are a little more cryptic.

""Mary's Boy Child", previously unknown, has already become immensely popular in England and has taken its place with the standard Christmas songs."

Previously unknown yet up there with the common Christmas stuff. I'm not sure what that means. Stille Nacht was previously unknown until Gruber/Mohr created it
