I've never heard of it before, but I'll take a better look later. That they mention Druidism and "Christ-consciousness" (I'm not really sure what they mean by that, honestly) in the same sentence made me blink.

I've heard of the Culdee's. And I think I've heard of this group some years ago. I think it's a modern version of the Pelegisian Heresy of Chrisitanity.

From the little bit I was able to read without gagging, I'd say it just screams "new agey".  If they use the term "reverance for nature" one more time...

Sorry.  My tolerance for that sort of thing is really low.

If you're looking for historically accurate information on the Céli Dé (or information that reflects current academic thought) then I'd look at a different site. While the idea that they preserved the druid teachings of Ireland has been around for a long time, it's not generally accepted in the academic community. If memory serves they were an extremely conservative bunch, but not in the druidical sense. I agree with yewberry...New Agey more than anything else.

This is the first I have heard of them.  From what I can see on their site it seems to be a reconstruction of early Irish Christianity.  The translation of their chants, The Fonn, seem pretty specific to Christianity.

Listening to the available tracks I'd say they remind me of Gregorian Chant somewhat mixed with a Gaelic lament.  Pleasant but not something I'm going to rush out and buy.

On their page for Tradition the following quote is seen:

Quote from: Céile Dé
When Christianity first came to the British Isles, it was recognized as having a distinctly Celtic flavour. It was characterised by a continued reverence for Nature as the face of the Divine. The One God spoke simply in the solitudes of wind and woodland, sea-wave and mountaintop... and for centuries, the old Gods and Goddesses – the many faces of The One - continued to have a place in the hearts and holy days of the people.

So it would seem to be both early 'Celtic' Christianity and soft polytheism... I feel another scrambled egg joke coming on here....

meh... I don't have much interest.  The whole site seems just slightly to commercial for me: purchase the cd's, the prayer beads and bags for them, make a donation to the Order... That and the fact that they seem to be freely blending Druidic practice and Christianity.  I'm not saying that they don't have a legitimate practice here but it doesn't hold any more interest for me than other flavors of Christianity.

I totally agree with you and with others upthread who were perplexed by the odd blend of "Druidism" and "Christ-consciousness" (I don't even know what that means!) and turned off by the new ageyness and commercialism.

But I had never heard of them, and wondered if others had -- and if maybe I was reading the site wrong...  Guess not.  Cheesy

Although, I do like some of the chanting.  Seems like it would be good for meditation -- especially if I don't understand the language.  Wink

Ditto.  I've been thinking a lot about song and my path, and these chants set some thoughts in my head. I love getting new ideas--even from weird newage sites.  Cheesy
