When The Priests released their eponymously-titled album in 2008, they could have had little inkling of what was about to happen to them. As it transpired, plenty did - huge record sales, record-breaking triumphs, and global fame.
Which means that now, five years later, Fathers Martin O'Hagan, Eugene O'Hagan, and David Delargy are among the most recognized and successful tenor trios in both the religious and secular worlds. Their debut album sold at such a fast pace, it secured them a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest-selling classical debut ever.
They fascinated the global media and graced the pages of all manner of publications, including Time magazine, and shared sofa space with TV hosts the world over. They have sung to audiences that include the British Royal Family and the Irish President. They were nominated for Classical Brit Awards for Classical Album of the Year for three consecutive years, and in September 2010, The Priests shared a stage with Pope Benedict XIV before a crowd of 80,000 people in London's Hyde Park. Millions more watched on television.
In 2011, they wanted to spend more time in their parishes. There were a sprinkling of concerts in Europe, and their Christmas with The Priests concerts in Ireland were a huge success. Towards the end of 2011, The Priests were approached by a screenwriter who asked if he could write the story of their musical lives and turn it into a film. Raising the Roof is currently in pre-production and is set for release in late 2014.
