Song: In The Chapel In The Moonlight
IN THE CHAPEL IN THE MOONLIGHT written by country composer Billy Hill, was introduced by Shep Fields and His Rippling Rhythm Orchestra. Their recording of the song went to No. 1 late in 1936. Three other versions became good sellers within a year - those by Richard Himber (No. 7), Mal Hallet (No. 11) and Broadway torch singer Ruth Etting (No. 20). Kitty Kallen, who had first found fame as a featured vocalist with Jimmy Dorsey`s big band, revived the song in 1954 (No. 4), as did the Four Knights (No. 30). A decade later, both The Bachelors (No. 32 in 1965) and Dean Martin (No. 25 in 1967) enjoyed success with IN THE CHAPEL IN THE MOONLIGHT.
