Beautiful Music NOW - Go Tell It on the Mountain

Today's Beautiful Music is a stirring performance of GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN. The Christmas song of the plantation is from a recording called SONGS OF STRUGGLE AND REDEMPTION - WE SHALL OVERCOME. The album features bass-baritone Dashon Burton using his powerful artistry performing spirituals and protest songs. His collaborator is fellow Bronx-born pianist Nathaniel Gumbs. You can also learn more about the history of GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
