Enya – “March of the Celts”.

Hey people! 🙂

Today I’d like to share with you this amazing piece from Enya. There is just something so majestic and stunning about it that I love, it gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it.

This piece is part of Enya’s album The Celts, which is the soundtrack of BBC TV series of the same title. Apparently the BBC people who stood behind the series had a lot of music to choose from as the soundtrack of the series, but they didn’t like anything of that, so finally they decided to ring Enya, or more exactly her manager Nicky Ryan, and ask if they’d be interested. The way I understand it from what I read, March of the Celts was the first piece that they – Enya and Nicky – sent to them, and ended up being commissioned to write the whole soundtrack. Just who wouldn’t like to have a soundtrack ike this to a series they were making?! 😀

This song is mostly created of mouth sounds, as a lot of Enya’s music, and apparently the only actual (Irish) lyrics that are in there say

Alive forever.

Dead forever.

Question of the day.

Any plans for March?

My answer:

No, don’t think I have any particular plans. Nothing spectacular going on at the moment for me. Oh, I will finally have to apply for my new devices, I was going to do it earlier this year or even in the end of last year, but finally I’ve decided I’ll try applying for another funding programme in which I’ll have probably a bit bigger chances of getting anything as it suits my needs more, and it is starting off in early April so I need to apply until then. But that would be it, other than that nothing too spectacular, well I guess that’s not spectacular either hahaha.

How about you? 🙂
