- Program Note by publisher


Go Tell It on the Mountain is an African-American spiritual song, compiled by John Wesley Work Jr., dating back to at least 1865, that has been sung and recorded by many gospel and secular performers. It is considered a Christmas carol because its original lyrics celebrate the Nativity of Jesus:

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere;

go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born.
