Anybody know anything about this?:

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.

"Then I will tell you a great secret, Captain. Perhaps the greatest of all time. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station, and the nebula outside, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. As we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective. " ~ Delenn, Babylon 5
