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.
It should not be surprising that a light so enkindled,
so illuminating could not be kept from shining brilliantly
and giving clear light in the house of the Lord;
nor could a vessel filled with perfume be so hidden
that it would not emit its fragrance
and suffuse the Lord's house with a sweet aroma.
