The Priests Working with Shane McGowan
I read in one of the Catholic newspapers that The Priests, the million pound record label signed Westminster Cathedral trio who performed for the Holy Father at Hyde Park, are working with Shane McGowan of The Pogues on a cover of 'Little Drummer Boy'.
The article suggested that some were offended that The Priests were collaborating with McGowan because he has lived a 'rock n'roll' life with plenty of sex, drugs and er...rock n' roll. Good on The Priests for doing it, I think. After all, didn't Our Lord suggest on numerous occasions that He did not come for the righteous, but for sinners? Our Blessed Lord seemed to spend an awful long time in the company of sinners, preferring their company, indeed, to that of the 'virtuous'. You have to say its an ambitious song to cover. Can they match Bowie and Bing?
