My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
When the stars begin to fall

My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
When the stars begin to fall

You will weep for the rocks and mountains
You will weep for the rocks and mountains
You will weep for the rocks and mountains
When the stars begin to fall

My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
When the stars begin to fall
You will hear the shout of victory
You will hear the shout of victory
You will hear the shout of victory
When the stars begin to fall

My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
When the stars begin to fall

My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
My Lord what a morning
When the stars begin to fall





When the stars begin to fall

I was going to listen to just one Seekers song and go to bed. That was 2 hours ago. They are so addictive.

We have heard great female pop singers with powerful and beautiful voices, such as Linda Ronstadt, Agnetha Faltskog (Abba), Karen Carpenter, Ann Wilson (Heart), Carole King, Olivia Newton-John, and others. But no one seems to be able to do what Judith Durham was able to do with her vocal power, pitch, purity, poise, resonance, range, emotion, grace, simplicity, effortless delivery, transcendent, heavenly sublime tonal quality, and overall luminous stage presence. Judith left her listeners awestruck with every performance. The angelic wings of her voice allowed the audience to soar with her to the deepest blue of heaven's skies. Truly missed, inimitable, and irreplaceable.

please do not forget Marie Frederiksson from Roxette

not a fair comparison. Judith cannot possibly sing the same type of songs as e.g. Bette Midler. I listen to the type of song, and enjoy the singer for what they're worth. Ronnie Gilbert is another super talent. No disrespect, this song is sublime.

Mary O'Hara as well.
