Description

    If you ever yearned to see and hear Judith Durham 'up close and personal' here's your once-in-a-lifetime chance!

    Perfectly suited to this time of year, 'An 'A Cappella' Experience' presents 24 spiritual songs recorded in a studio setting on Sunday mornings, plus a bonus DVD of Judith's recital of songs and poems - 'Up Close & Personal' - at the Melbourne Recital Centre. That much-loved golden voice, completely unadorned spine-tinglingly enthralling and profoundly moving.

    Judith explains: "In July 2006 I was unexpectedly asked to sing at a gathering in Sydney where someone was going to speak about spirituality.  The request was quite unique – to perform a short set of spiritual songs 'a cappella' (unaccompanied)."

    "I had certainly never thought of singing 'a cappella' in a large auditorium before.  The purity of the simple presentation seemed to engender a very peaceful environment and for me the lyrics became more like prayers."

    "Over a period of two years I went on to record a wide 'a cappella' repertoire of spiritually focussed material and it has been a wonderful joy for me.  I hope it proves to be an uplifting experience for you as I now share these deeply personal songs in this collection."

    "Back in 2009, I then presented a unique recital – 'Up Close & Personal' – combining some of the 24 spiritual songs I had recorded in the studio setting.  I also recited some of my poems, dating back to my first published poem at the age of 13."

    "The recital was filmed so I hope you enjoy the occasion as it brings back some lovely memories for me too of an 'a cappella' experience."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long awaited For 51 years I have admired The Seekers and in particular Judith Durham who I first met in 1965. Obviously I have a great collection of her albums plus many memories of her career in music. However this CD and DVD set are something that her many admirers have been waiting for that is to see and hear Judith singing and talking totally unaccompanied so that the perfection and clarity of her voice can be fully appreciated. I so enjoyed watching and listening to these most unusual and very personal albums and it was as if she was in the room with me here in the UK. It will be listened to time and time again because there is so much to appreciate and each time I listen something new will emerge. All in all something quite wonderful especially at Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As beautiful as Judith herself! I have months to finally order my copy of Judith Durham An 'ACAPPELLA' Experience. I will tell you I am SO HAPPY that I ordered it and was so excited when I received it last week. Living in the United States, getting anything of The Seeker's or of Judith's is always a treat. This cd/dvd set is amazing. It is like sitting in the room with her as she shares her beautiful words. The joy of my life was seeing her in person in London in 2014. This is a true masterpiece. I Love It!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still in fine voice! Been waiting for this album for years, since vol 1 came out and it has been worth waiting for. Wasn't expecting a dvd as well! Judith Durham has a flawless voice and so brave to do an a capella concert. Most artists would run a mile. I loved everything about it, the choice of songs, the voice, her own compositions. She is an artist to be reckoned with, even after 50 odd years in the business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Judith Durham - A Capella Experience I am absolutely thrilled with this CD/DVD set. What a privilege to share the personality and voice of this great lady, truly one of the greatest performers of all time, a voice quite unlike any other. What an amazing ability to express love! She lets us see her as a humble and caring person. We all wish we had more friends like her!
