Some of the most popular Christmas music includes carols and traditional hymns and classical music composed to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Musical forms that are especially appreciated in the South are some of the spirituals associated with Christmas. As a form of African American folk music born out of the soul of slavery, the spiritual became what Lovell described as “the foundation stone of black song and black poetry.”
