The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench


I don’t know any priests who sing like this, do you?

posted by deacon greg kandra

I had the good fortune of having lunch a couple weeks ago with a fella from the Archdiocese of New York who also happens to handle North American marketing for Sony for the singing trio known as The Priests.

These guys are amazing.

They made the rounds of the morning talk shows last week, and just did a concert that was aired on EWTN. Googling around, I found the EPK (Electronic Press Kit) below. It gives a great glimpse into their lives as priests and performers.

Below is their performance of “Ave Maria.”

In Orthodoxy, when a man indicates that he may have a vocation to the diaconate/priesthood, the first question is, “Can he sing?”

The finest voice in my parish is possessed by one of our priests (who sang on Broadway and EWTN). And I would be a music minister…

Yes, Father, and there is a reason for that. I went to a neighboring parish this Saturday for Liturgy, and experienced a tone-deaf priest. In an Orthodox church.

RWP: Well, they say that they ordain you a deacon, and then, when your voice is worn out, they ordain you a priest. Not from what I’ve seen, but maybe…

“they say that they ordain you a deacon, and then, when your voice is worn out, they ordain you a priest.”(-:One of our subdeacons (and chanters) is taking vows at a local monastery, so all of us in the choir are going to take over the ison at Matins.

Gaudete! And let's break out a carol or two...
"Gesu Bambino," anyone? This is one of my favorites, and nobody does it better than these gals: Kathleen Battle and Frederica von Staade. Enjoy.
