English Congregation


English Congregation

English Congregation was a British pop ensemble. They formed in England under the name The Congregation, but changed their name in 1972 to avoid confusion with other similarly-named bands. The group's lead singer was Brian Keith, and they had a hit single in the U.S. and Europe with "Softly Whispering I Love You" (a song originally written in 1967 by Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway, and previously recorded by David and Jonathan), which peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also reached #4 on the UK Singles Chartcite book

The group released no further singles and faded into obscurity; Keith later became a session musician. The lack of further chart presence, left them as transatlantic one-hit wonders.
