This was based on a song called "While The Angelus Was Ringing," which was originally a hit in France for both Les Compagnons De La Chanson and Edith Piaf. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England)
The Browns were a family group from Arkansas - a brother and 2 sisters.
This was also a #1 Country hit. It led the chart for ten weeks, holding the record for the longest reign by a group (of at least three members) for nearly 56 years, until Little Big Town's "Girl Crush
" racked up its eleventh week on the summit in 2015.
