Knights of the Pain Table

A Camelot for Sufferers of Chronic Pain

The Priests from Ireland Hath Released Harmony with Prayer by St. Columba

The Priests

“The Priests” is a trio group comprised of three Catholic parish priests who began singing together when in boarding school in Northern Ireland. The two brothers, Fr, Eugene and Fr. Martin O’Hagan and their friend, Fr. David Delargy, now hold the Guinness World Record for the fastest selling classical debut album ever released.

Their debut album “The Priests”, was released in 2008 and was a phenomenal success, with their beautiful classical arias and traditional Irish songs. In an interview they mentioned that when they sing, they are praying.     Listen to The Priest sing Pie Jesu, live on GMTV.

“Harmony”, their second album has now been released with a mix of classical and sacred music.    “Amazing Grace”,  “How Great Thou Art” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, are just three of the songs on the CD.

The three priests also collaborated on composing their first song for the album, called “King of Kings”.     The words are from a prayer by St. Columba, an Irish Saint, who lived between 521 and 597.      He was not only a missionary saint,   but he was a statesman,  a scholar, a poet, and the founder of numerous churches and monasteries.      Fr. David in an interview explained that the song expresses their belief that although everyone faces difficult times and suffering we are in God’s hands and we must place our trust in God.

Watch The Priests discuss how they arrived in the world of music, as they chat to Eamonn Holmes on Songs of Praise.

Son Songs of Praise

We thanketh The Priests for giving so lovingly, their amazing gift of music that makes our souls resonate.

My destined time is known to thee,
and death doth know his hour;
did warriors strong around me throng,
they could not stay his power:
no walls of stone can man defend
when thou thy messenger doth send

~Lyrics of King of Kings
