Journey of the Angels

the 2nd song of the album And Winter Came (2008), composed and performed by Enya Read or download Journey of the Angels lyrics by Roma Ryan
Somewhere in a winter night the angels begin their flight;
dark skies with miles to go, no footsteps to be lost in snow.
They fly to you Oh, new-born king They fly to you Oh, angels sing
one is sorrow one is peace one will come to give you sleep
one is comfort one is grief one will take the tears you weep
New star in a midnight sky in heaven all the angels fly
soft wings so true and all things they will give to you
Somewhere in a winter night the angels begin their flight
Tonight all sing Oh, angels, a new-born king
Tonight all sing Oh, angels, a new-born king

It sets the mood nicely for what will follow. "Journey Of The Angels" is slow, religious, and beautiful and shows the purity of her vocal tone. (Blog Critics, Nov. 2008)

As the album kicks off with And Winter Came... you remember just how much you love Enya's tranquil sounds before she has even begun to sing. But when we do get some vocals out of her on Journey of the Angels it's just so relaxing and enjoyable as Enya doesn't bother with the loud drums and guitars we are so sick of seeing in music today, but just lets her incredible voice dictate the music on this tranquil song. (FemaleFirst, Nov. 2008)

On the first track it is like a big white canvas is brought into the studio. With the first hum, Enya paints herself in a snow covered landscape. The el piano and the rich pads fill the rest. It reminds of previous slow songs like Deora Ar Mo Chroi on A Day Without Rain. A fine intro, but nothing more. Track no. two, Journey of the Angels, is more to the point. Enya sings, um yes, like an angel. It's the longest track on the album, and the lyrics is Christmas-oriented, Tonight/all sing/Oh, angels/a new-born king. Nice lyrics indeed. (New Age Music, Nov. 2008)

In the ways typical of Enya, the album is not entirely successful. Journey of the Angels are among the few snoozers, the type of music that embeds Enya's reputation as a sorceress who merely excels at putting her listeners to sleep. (The Badger-Herald, Nov. 2008)
