Favourite song

Patrick O’Hagan’s favourite song is “love thee. Dearest.” He tells how as a boy soprano he sang it at (an Irish eisteddfod) and was, as he put it. “strongly fancied to win.” However, he was fourth. His father, when told, said: “Why, that’s grand.” And asked how many boys competed. Even when told there had been four competitors only, he still thought his boy’s placing was “grand ”


Patrick O'Hagan owes much of his success as a concert artist to the late Hal Stead, who died suddenly last month during O’Hagan’s New Zealand tour. For seven and a half years Hal Stead was O’Hagan’s accompanist, coach, business manager and friend. Their association began when the young Irishman went to the Australian in London and asked for an opinion on his voice. Soon he was working daily under Stead’s supervision. In the course of their musical association, the two men became close personal friends. After the Australian tour, Patrick O’Hagan hopes to go to France to study the language and acquire a repertoire of French songs. The Australian tour, which covers 80 concerts, lasts almost until the end of the year, and Mr. O’Hagan is hoping to bring out his wife and three children, Michael, Sean, and Eamonn. who is only 18 months.
