Friday Music: Fireballs of the Eucharist

Long-time readers of this blog know that I love traditional (Celtic) music. Recently, I discovered Nuala Kennedy, an Irish singer and flute player who is a regular at the Celtic Connections winter music festival in Glasgow, Scotland. Kennedy and her band play traditional music with imagination and verve, not to mention a lot of energy.

There are a number of wonderful videos of Nuala Kennedy, including one called "The March of the Pterodactyls," but being a priest, I just had to post the one of her playing a song new to me, Fireballs of the Eucharist.

The song was written by Canadian Oliver Schroer, and "fireballs of the eucharist" is a medical malapropism for fibroids of the uterus. Whatever. I love it.



  1. Spectacular. As you say very different and they are all terrific musicians.
    Not my taste normally, but this is an exception.
