Album Review

After selling over three million copies of their first two albums, the Priests turned their focus to the winter holidays. NOËL finds the ministers harmonizing their way through a number of Christmas standards, with an emphasis on traditional carols., Rovi

Customer Reviews

A must have for the Christmas season!!!

At last - The Priests have recorded a Christmas album - and it was well worth the wait. Every song on this beautifully crafted and produced CD is a gem. Every song except the collaboration with Shane McGowan; sorry - it just doesn't work. The Bing Crosby/David Bowie version worked because Bowie proved he was more than just a rock singer. McGowan sounds as if he had one too many Guinnesses on the way to the studio. It might have worked well with another singer; sadly, this singer isn't it. That being said, the rest of the album is delightful. It's hard to pick a favourite but I might have to vote for "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen". Also, the version of "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth" featuring just The Fathers is gorgeous. I can't say enough good things about this CD. Too bad SONY isn't promoting the heck out of it. It could become a Christmas classic for many families. Well done, Fathers - another beautiful CD!!

Christmas in the Drunk Tank

Personally I like the version of Little Drummer Boy with McGowan...he sounds exactly like you would expect him to sound, with one two many Guinesses in him on the way to the studio. He wouldn't be the same any other way!

Love it!

The Priests sing beautifully and this album is just great! I LOVE the arrangement of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" AND "In Dulci Jubilo" the most but "What Child is this," and "Holly and Ivy" as also REALLY beautiful as is the rest of the album really. I agree that the song with Shane McGowan is not my fav. I told my husband he sounds drunk...but my husand really likes it, lol, though he likes Irish drinking songs so go figure. It is a lovely CD, again, not only are the voices heavenly but the arrangements are amazing :) I look forward to a new album from them every year.


Formed: Derry, Ireland

Genre: Classical

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Like Il Divo, the Priests make classical music that's intended to appeal to a broad, pop-minded audience. Unlike other classical crossover acts, though, the group's members are all Roman Catholic priests. Father Eugene O'Hagan, Father Martin O'Hagan, and Father David Delargy hail from Northern Ireland, where they began singing together as students at St MacNissi's College. They later trained for the priesthood at the Irish College in Rome, and it was during this time that they were invited to sing...
