In The 1970s Congregation

Nope this not anything religious at all. This British band was originally called The Congregation who had a Stateside No. 29 hit, but a UK No. 4 hit with Softly Whispering I Love You, on Signpost records. The band consisted of Brian Keith and session singers only. It was a one hit wonder.

It was also a cover from David and Jonathon, who were really Roger Greenaway and Roger Cook they and named after the biblical characters.

Softly, whispering I love you,
echoes of your voice are calling still through my dreams,
softening the chill of the breeze.

Through my window,
I can see the moonglow
painting silver shadows on a rose-colored land;

A world that we walk hand in hand
in a day of gold
colored by the glow of new love.

Oh, Woman, I can feel your warm face ever close to my lips
and the scent of you invades the cool evening air.

I can close my eyes and you´re there in my arms still
and I know your soft kiss,
turning into music every beat of my heart,
