Well known soprano singer Emer Barry, who comes from Longford town, has recorded a charity single to raise funds for St Vincent de Paul.
â€˜O Holy Nightâ€™, which she recorded with the other members of her classical-crossover group, AffinitÃ, also features the Palestrina Boys Choir, Carlow Choral Society, and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
AffinitÃ approached SVP about the possibility of recording the single following a concert last September, which was hosted to celebrate the bi-centenary of the charityâ€™s presence in the Dublin region.
The recording features three other tracks, which can all be downloaded from iTunes for â‚¬3.96, while â€˜O Holy Nightâ€™ alone costs â‚¬0.99.
Emer was the guest soprano at last weekâ€™s Longford County Choir Annual Concert which was held in the St Melâ€™s Cathedral Centre.
