The Celts video album

to watch; download the lyrics and the songs of the album in mp3 format, video and pictures in HQ. Composed and performed by Enya, lyrics by Roma Ryan, produced by
Nicky Ryan, The Celts (1992, US and UK Platinum) a re-mastered version of 1987 debut album Enya. On The Celts, Enya employs the multi-vocal technique - layers and layers of perfectly pitched and matched breathing of vowel sounds. This results in a vast choral wave and gives life to the background music of synthethisers and digitals.

Reviews
Nicky accepts the twilight, melancholy nature of the music:"The producer of the series thought the Celts were on their way out. I don't know if the series projects that but there was a certain sadness in that idea. We didn't quite accept that. We felt 'hang on, maybe the Celts aren't on their way out' so there's a certain positive vibe in the music coupled with the feeling that it might happen. There are two colours in it." He adds that he thought "the sound should be ominous and dark but at the same time, I knew the melody would shine through and take the darkness away." (Hot Press, Apr. 1987)

Having already achieved a degree of acclaim with her soundtracks for The Frog Prince and The Celts - with the release of her first fully-fledged solo album, Watermark, Enya seems set for the type of accolades reserved for major-league artists. Niall Stokes unveils the creative trinity behind the finished meisterwerk, talks to Enya and her collaborators Roma and Nicky Ryan, and ponders the question: what will commerce do to this thing of beauty? "As a Clannad fan of the old school, I'd heard about the Celts album which Enya had done," Dickins recalled. "I'd loved it so much that I played it every night before I went to bed. So when Enya joined us, I just said 'I've fallen asleep to your music every night for the past three weeks. I also explained that it was something coming out of Ireland that I'd be so much more interested in than the kind of thing we'd had before. As it turned out, Enya was free to negotiate a deal and so we jumped on it." (Hot Press, Sep. 1988)

To some extent, it comes down to commitment and over the past six years, from the leanest winters after the split with Clannad, through the thaw of The Frog Prince and the promise of spring in The Celts, to the watershed of Watermark, that's something Enya, Nicky and Roma have never lacked for. (Hot Press, Dec. 1988)

"All the while," Enya continues, "I loved Nicky's wonderful concepts of the layering of vocals, and Roma had wonderful stories from Irish mythology, so late in 1982 we decided to leave Clannad to see what we three could evolve together. Our first project was the theme music for David Puttnam's film The Frog Prince, and then we did the soundtrack for a six-part BBC television history of the Irish called The Celts." (Billboard Magazine, Oct. 2000)

She started out performing with her siblings in the Celtic pop band Clannad but left in 1982 and went on to compose the soundtrack for a 1986 BBC television series called "The Celts." That effort marked the beginning of a long artistic relationship with lyricist Roma Ryan and his wife, arranger Nicky Ryan, her collaborators to this day. She conceives and records her music in almost total isolation at her Dublin studio, performing nearly all the vocals and instruments herself and collaborating only with the Ryans. "When I go into the studio, I have to leave anything that's going to distract me at the door, whether that's success or worrying how listeners will respond," she said. She thinks listeners sense that isolation and use her music to create mellow time and space for themselves. It's a laborious process that has yielded only four more albums since "The Celts" soundtrack. (MTV, Oct. 2001)

Things were touch-and-go for a long time. Enya gave piano lessons and the money ran out as they waited for her to compose something. Eventually, they were commissioned to write music for BBC series The Celts, then a movie, The Frog Prince. Roma added lyrics to Enya's melodies, many of them written in an alien language 'from a faraway planet' Roma invented, called 'Loxian', a kind of cross between Martian, Gaelic and Hobbit. Neither Roma nor Enya, it transpires, disappointingly, can speak it - even though they created it. I know this because I tested them on a few phrases such as: 'Mal korrheeay onakoul ve pirrro' ('It is raining in Ireland') and 'Hanee unnin Eeskan?' ('Would you like a cup of tea?') They hadn't a clue what I was talking about. (Telegraph, Oct. 2008)
