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.
