Video: How Many Priests Does It Take To Sing The Ave Maria?

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 01/26/15

Classical musical trio from Northern Ireland honor Mary with their talent.

"The Priests" are a classical musical trio made up of three Roman Catholic priests from Northern Ireland: Fr. Eugene O’Hagan and his brother Fr. Martin O'Hagan, who are originally from the village of Claudy, County Londonderry, and Fr. David Delargy, from Ballymena, County Antrim. The three met as students at St. MacNissi's College and have been singing ever since. After signing a record deal with SonyBMG in April 2008, the priests recorded their debut album in Northern Ireland and Rome and had the unusual honor of being allowed to record in St. Peter's Basilica. They plan to tour the United States again in March.
