Notes & Reviews:

2009 sophomore albu from the singing global superstars who broke the Guinness world record for the fastest selling classical debut album of all time. The Priests, brothers Fathers Martin and Eugene O'Hagan and Father David Delargy, were young school friends when they first sang together at the age of 12 (Martin and David) and 15 (Eugene). Their love of singing continued whilst studying for the priesthood in Rome. Once ordained, all three took up parish commitments. Singing was both part of prayer plus, in their spare time, they performed in local operas, musicals and choirs. In February 2008, a record company scout knocked on their door and asked them to make a demo. The rest, as they say is history. The Priests never allow their music commitments to stand in the way of their day jobs and parish obligations.

Notes & Reviews:

The Priests' 2008 eponymous debut received a quick sequel in 2009's Harmony, an album designed to continue upon the surprise success of its predecessor instead of build upon it. By most respects, Harmony is a replication of The Priests, offering the same blend of religious and classical standards, punctuated by the odd Christmas carol, all given clean, warm, spacious arrangements designed to showcase the honeyed harmonies of these three Irish priests. This is a case where more of the same isn't a bad thing, since Harmony is executed as well as the debut, which is all that the group's fans want.
