Serene Sunday – Mary’s Little Boy

Getting a late Sunday start, here is a Christmas song by the incomparable Harry Belafonte, Mary’s Little Boy. I was first drawn as a child by the poignant melody of Belafonte’s voice.  Written in 1956, it was first recorded for his Christmas album and went to #1 on the UK Billboard charts in 1957.  It remains a classic today.

  1. Harry Belafonte is one of my all-time favourites! The parents had a couple of his LPs when we were growing up. Lovely choice for Serene Sunday.

  2. Love this song!  Belafonte’s voice has such a calming effect on me, like Perry Como. (I love both of their Christmas albums).
