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.
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
