The Priests are Father Eugene O’Hagan, Father Martin O’Hagan and Father David Delargy; three Roman Catholic Priests from Northern Ireland who grew up singing together while studying for the priesthood and have spent their lives using music to spread the word of God, finding time between their religious duties to sing together.
Featuring a collection of spiritually inspired tracks such as 'Pie Jesu', 'Ave Maria', 'Panis Angelicus' as well as great classical arias and traditional Irish tracks and blessings, the album showcases the passion and exquisite
harmonies of The Priests. The album has been produced by Mike Hedges, whose previous work includes best selling albums by U2 and Manic Street Preachers. The album, featuring the Choir of Philharmonic Academy of Rome, was recorded in Ireland and in the Choir Chapel in St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.
The three have stipulated that a percentage of the proceeds from record sales will go to a charity or charities of their choice.
ITV has just finished shooting a major TV documentary on The Priests following their every move since the day they signed with their record company. They also featured in Time Magazine along with a photo shoot with coveted photographer David Bailey.
The Priests is not only an album of awe inspiring music but a celebration of faith, spirituality, tolerance, love and the power of the human spirit.
