And Now For Something Totally Different
I've long been a fan of The Irish Tenors (who are only Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns and Ronan Tynan!) and have wondered what would happen if that magical sound would be applied to sacred music. Guess what? Along comes "The Priests."
The Priests are literally that: three working Catholic parish priests, all from Northern Ireland. Their debut album was released in Ireland a year ago, and has become the fastest-selling classical album debut in U.K. history. In November, they are scheduled to release their sophomore album, entitled Harmony. I hope to be able to review the album when it arrives, because the songs I've heard are amazing.
Now, I know that classical, sacred music is not to everyone's taste, but would it really kill you to broaden your horizons a bit?
While considering that, take a listen to this.
