Irish choral music has little history before the latter part of the twentieth century. This is somewhat understandable for a country often subjugated, but with such a strong indigenous musical identity of its own. In 1987 Dublin composer Michael McGlynn founded ANÚNA, Ireland's National Choir. Much of the group's repertoire explores the relationship between traditional choral ideas in combination with the musical heritage of McGlynn's native land.

It would be difficult to find "ancient" music that predates this, no matter how hard you try. Even if the lyrics are about their Celtic roots, it doesn't mean that they are pagan by religion. I liked the movie "Thor." That doesn't make me a Norse believer. I just enjoy mythology. Saying you don't like Anuna because some of the music has Christian origin is like saying "I like sitar music -- too bad the musicians are Hindu." It's just an ignorant thing to say. Since I'm a Christian, I would be glad if it were actually true that they are Christian. I have sung in enough choirs to know that singing Christian music doesn't make you a Christian -- it just makes you someone who appreciates classical music. (Most classical European music was written by and for Christians.) Get over it.
  • To bad they are Christian? What kind of rubbish is that? It just so happens that Anúna don't represent any form of Christianity at all. How sad that there are people out there who are more interested in the labels that people wear rather than what kind of people they are...
