Three middle-aged Catholic Priests from Northern Ireland have become a recording sensation with their eponymous debut album which recorded the biggest opening week of sales ever for a classical album. The Priests,
the album, shot into the UK album chart at number five in its first week and also topped the classical chart in its first week of release.
To launch the album in September 2008, The Priests -- Fathers Eugene and Martin O Hagan, who are brothers and their schoolfriend of 30 years ago, Father David Delargy -- conducted a concert in Armagh Cathedral, Ireland, with special guests Sir James Galway and Moya Brennan, showcasing their incredible vocal talent and singing a spellbinding collection of traditional and religious classics.
