A group of Irish musicians have recorded a beautiful, haunting version of Liam Ó Maonlaí's song Worry Not with the artist.

New Airs is a classical crossover and fusion group who record live pop up studio arrangements of classic rock and pop songs at various unique venues around the country and Worry Not was recorded at All Hallows Church in Dublin.

It's a new arrangement of the song, and is arranged for voices, violin, viola, cello, percussion and electronics featuring Ó Maonlaí on vocals with Rachel Voloczi.

The production is directed by Irish composer, arranger and producer Glen Austin.

"This is the first time we have collaborated with the original songwriter in a new arrangement of their song," he says.

"To collaborate with such a great singer and artist as Liam Ó Maonlaí at such a beautiful venue as All Hallows was a very special experience. We hope that people enjoy the video!"

Worry Not is performed by:

Liam Ó Maonlaí (Vocals), Rachel Voloczi (Vocals), Violin 1: Orla Ní Bhraoin, Viola: Adele Johnson, Cello: Martin Johnson, Percussion: Rónán Scarlett, Electronics: Glen Austin, Arrangement: Glen Austin
