EMMET is from Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. We were blessed that by God's providence, he was in Ireland for just a week over the summer for a short break from his American tour. That he was willing to give up an afternoon of his short time with family and friends to record the second verse of Calm the Soul in Ian's studio in Moneygall was hugely appreciated. He will be back in Ireland for a concert on the 24th of October in the Mullingar Arts Centre.
He has performed in over 80 cities throughout the US and Canada and has performed in New York’s Carnegie Hall. Among many other honours was named ‘Irish Tenor Of The Year ‘ by the Irish American Music Association.
Monasticism....not only offers the possibility of peace and interior life, but also the ability to witness intensely to the Christian conception of man and the world marked by a deep harmony which far from opposing spirit and matter, the individual and society , God and man, unifies all in a loftier plan of beauty, solidarity and holiness. Man was created beautiful and holy by God.
