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
