The song history for the African-American spiritual entitled Beautiful Star is hard to trace. Depending upon what period the song was written in, traditional African-American spirituals may have been composed spontaneously in a group of singers. Because the music of a spiritual reflects different cultural preferences and tastes, the songs are often studied in a historical context as well as a musical one. Closely tied to American history, African-American spirituals like Beautiful Star have become an important part of many religious Christmas celebrations. Other, more well-known African-American spirituals include: Go Tell It On The Mountain, Children, Go Where I Send Thee and Mary Had a Baby.
We hope you enjoy our sale on the rare African-American spiritual entitled Beautiful Star. If you enjoy this song, be sure to browse our selection of African-American spirituals for more choices.
