It’s not over until the perfectly healthy-sized women sing.

    With much respect to the others, I was once lucky to be at an event where Aebh Kelly gave a short performance. If you have not heard her sing, you really must. It was mesmerising.
    It has been my pleasure to listen to the performances of the others, but only one I have heard live, and there is something about a live performance of any kind that recordings or radio, or now, Zoom and Youtube, just cannot replicate.

      I used to live three doors down from Majella Cullagh, look her up if you don’t know her, but when she was practicing on a Sunday morning, it was the best wake up in the world.

    I used to share a house with an opera singer. Nothing quite like languishing in the bath while he got his vocal chords around Puccini.
