Overview

The Priests -- Fathers Eugene O'Hagan, his brother Martin, and their old school friend David Delargy -- are one of the most celebrated acts in religious music, having sold three million albums worldwide. They're set to release a brand new album of Christmas carols entitled Noël just in time for the holiday season.

Noël is sure to be a welcome addition this Christmas and features some of the most cherished seasonal songs -- everything from "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman," "What Child Is This," "Hark The Herald Angels Sing," to "Oh Come All Ye Faithful," and "Silent Night."

It is a solemnly beautiful record, stately and humble and full of grace. "We have given each of these songs a different interpretation and a little priestly twist," grins Father Martin O'Hagan. "I hope it will get everybody into the festive spirit, and I hope there will be something here for everyone."

The Barnes & Noble Exclusive edition of the album features the bonus cut "Coventry Carol." From the Label

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Après avoir vendu plus de trois millions d'albums avec leurs deux premiers opus, les Prêtres s'intéressent à la période des fêtes de Noël. L'album sobrement intitulé Nöel permet aux trois membres du clergé de reprendre des standards des chansons de cette période de fêtes et de tout particulièrement mettre l'emphase sur leurs harmonies vocales.

The album "Noel," by "The Priests," arrived this week. I had pre-ordered it because I am a fan of Fathers Eugene and Martin O'Hagen, and David Delargy. Now that I have heard this album, I will purchase it for all my family and friends (telling them to OPEN IT before Christmas). This is the kind of music you want to hear (year after year) while you are decorating the tree and also Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. It will fill your home with beautiful music that reminds us of God's Message of Love to the World. I also need to mention that the orchestration is superb. You will be very happy with this Christmas album. MLA Melbourne, Florida
