Yes, sweet and romantic is a good way to describe it. The close harmony is beautiful.

Here is a very moving rendition of Danny Boy by Judith Durham of The Seekers.

Here is another one from the Seekers. I'm really grooving on them at present. :D The classic folk sound of all time. This one has lyrics somewhat along the lines of the Jewel song in the '90s thread.

I liked those songs! I'm actually surprised that they're Australian, as I didn't pick up on that in the first video. I thought she sounded Irish.
