I'm no fan of Joan Baez's politics, but she blows me away with this song here called "Virgin Mary." http://www.rhapsody.com/joan-baez/tracks.html?pagestart=650
[Click on #652 "Virgin Mary"] It comes from her little known Christmas album called "Noel." The entire CD is beautiful, and all of the songs are Christian classics such as "O come, O come, Emmanuel," "Ave Maria," "Mary's Wandering," "What Child is This" etc. But "Virgin Mary" is my favorite of all.
If you decide to buy the CD, make sure to get the remastered addition that has the bonus tracks. There should be 23 tracks in all. The original release didn't have "Virgin Mary" on it. It may take some time to come in the mail, but it's worth the wait.
I wished I liked her other stuff, but I'm just not a folk music guy. Yet this one Cd of hers is one of my all time favorite CD's!
To sing these songs the way she does, she must have some degree of Christian consciousness. May God bless her for this beautiful work. I wish she had done more like this.
Hope you enjoy it.
