Singing priests return to Liverpool
Frs Martin O’Hagan, Eugene O’Hagan and David Delargy – better known as the internationally acclaimed singing Priests – will be flying to the UK to give a rare performance for a concert in aid of children’s charity Nugent and the Metropolitan Cathedral of Liverpool.
The trio, who have been singing together since they boarded in the 1970s as students at St MacNissi’s College, have released three studio albums – their eponymous debut The Priests (2008); Harmony (2009); and Alleluia (2016).
They have also toured over the years, singing in New Zealand, Australia, the US and Canada and still manage to be parish priests in the Diocese of Down & Connor, Northern Ireland.
Their free time is sparse but they are delighted to come over to Liverpool once again, to sing in one of the best venues in the city, which was the birthplace of such musical greats as The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers and Cilla Black.
Pat Murphy, the former Director of Fundraising for Jospice, is directing the concert.
She said: “I am delighted to be working with The Priests again, especially in one of the best concert halls in the country. The audience can be assured of a great evening of music, song and more than a little Irish craic.”
The Priests will be joined by Liverpool mezzo soprano Danielle Thomas on the evening and the Liverpool Signing Choir will also be making an appearance in each half of the show.
