@adrianbarich@virgotweet The purity & sweetness of her voice is really something.
No warble or unsettling vibrato.
I used to stand on the desk in primary school and sing ‘the carnival is over’, giving impromptu concerts, hoping I sounded like her 😂

Nominated for an Academy Award ‘Best Song In A Movie’. WOW!
She had a wonderful voice .. vale Judith.
I believe the melody of 'The Carnival Is Over' is a ballad from the Thirty Years War, c400 yr ago. Which shows good music never dies .. even though we do. ✝️
#FemaleVoices A postscript because I didn’t fit in Judith Durham who has just died aged 79 & she had such a lovely voice. I knew her voice from The Seekers’ songs which were popular when I was a child. The Carnival Is Over was a favourite: https://t.co/l1DTFkfBkB
@DanielAndrewsMP Dear @DanielAndrewsMP, Warner Chapell Music represents the publishing rights for The Seekers songs 'The Carnival is Over', 'Georgy Girl' and 'I'll Never Find Another You', amongst others. We would love to have a conversation about a celebration of Judith Durham.
Sad news about the death of #JudithDurham of The Seekers. As a 10 year old, she was my first crush. 40 years later I got to interview her, and she was just lovely. And she told me what I'd suspected at the time: when she sang The Carnival Is Over, she WAS thinking about me. https://t.co/Ci1mARsJG9
@TimAshAsh We've just been sitting outside an Italian cafe in Dublin going through some of the numbers - and the fact that 'The Carnival is Over' was originally a Russian song led to a similar case, Mary Hopkins' 'Those Were the Days'. I had these - + Millie + the Ofarims - on 45s as a kid.
One, of so many beautiful songs by The Seekers. Remember them all. And #JudithDurham had the most pure voice ever. Always gave me goosebumps to hear her sing. Sad to hear of her passing. The Carnival Is Over (1967 In Colour Stereo) https://t.co/G7jYg16uHf via @YouTube
