A beautiful Celtic version of Silent Night
Emer Barry and Affiniti (Link to youtube channel)
Irish singers Emer Barry and Lynn Hilary met in college – two ‘small voiced’ sopranos training in classical voice and opera. While Emer pursued opera, Lynn embraced the more natural, Celtic style of singing and became a soloist with Celtic Woman. Emer remained in the Opera world for a time, studying with English National Opera and performing small roles in Ireland. However, Emer and Lynn reconnected through their love of creating Celtic and classical crossover music (Emer with Affiniti and Lynn with CaraNua) and decided to record something special together, a unique version of Silent Night, sung in Irish and fused with Brahms Lullaby.
