AGE News reports that Dolores O’Riordan will sing “Adeste Fideles” and “Linger” again this year for the Vatican Christmas Concert.
These are the same two songs that Dolores sang at her last performance at the Vatican in 2002. However, AGE reports that we can expect the new performance to be somewhat different.
For starters, “Adeste Fideles” will be a duet with Italian tenor Gian Luca Terranova. In addition to being a singer, Terranova is known in Italy as a songwriter and playwright. Terranova has written the lyrics to music in several Italian musicals.
More intriguing, perhaps, is that AGE reports that Dolores will deliver a stripped-down version of “Linger” with “new, particularly bare and essential vocals.” We’re not sure exactly what this means yet, but we only have to wait until the Vatican performance on Saturday to find out.
Italian TV channel Canal 5 and radio station RTL 102.5 will record the entire concert and broadcast it on Christmas Eve in Italy at 21:00.
We’ll have more news as it happens.
