Tommy Drennan’s O Holy Night

It was at Number 1 in the Irish charts on Christmas day in 1971 and this version of “O Holy Night”, sung by Tommy Drennan is a very special version. It is special because it features Tommy as a boy soprano with the Redemptorist Choir in Limerick singing the first verse as recorded in 1953. The second verse is sung by Tommy, all grown up, with a glorious tenor voice when he was fronting the Monarchs Showband in 1971. Speaking to Ger Sweeney for a Christmas special radio programme, Tommy tells the story of how the hit record came to be.
