Tune of the Day: Mary Had a Baby

arranged for flute and guitar

This Christmas carol comes from the African-American tradition and talks about the coming of the baby Jesus. It appears to have originated on the South Carolina coastal island of Saint Helena in the 19th century.

Thanks to Diana Irving for contributing this arrangement!
