From Bali to Cali They Sport The Festive Glow

Factfile - Enya
  • Enya recorded Oíche Chiún (Irish language version of 'Silent Night') as a b-side for her Evening Falls single in 1988. It later re-appeared on the Special Olympics charity album called 'A Very Special Christmas 3' and then on Enya's Christmas EP in 1994.
  • She released a 6 track Christmas in EP in 2006: Sounds of the Season: The Enya Holiday Collection.
  • In 2008, Enya released her album And Winter Came... - on which all the songs had a Christmas / Winter theme. It sold over 3 million copies.

If any artist was ready made for recording Christmas music it is Ireland's Enya. Her haunting dreamscapes have a celestial wintry feel and as such don't require an awful lot of tinkering to appeal to the Christmas market. For all that it took Eithne Ní Bhraonáin (Enya's real name) almost 2 decades to record her first Christmas album, although she has a good scattering of Christmas songs up to that point which have picked up decent traction over the years.

The first and most famous of Enya's early Christmas songs is 'Oíche Chiún' which is the Irish language version of 'Silent Night'. Enya recorded it in 1988 and it appeared on the b-side of her 'Evening Falls' single at the time. 'Oíche Chiún' is a hushed delight, offering a definitive contemporary take on this age old carol. Its appeal would see it chosen for inclusion on the wonderful Special Olympics charity album called 'A Very Special Christmas 3' as well as several future Christmas releases from Enya herself. The most prominent of these was 1994's 'Christmas EP' which curiously included only one Christmas song, the aforementioned 'Oíche Chiún'.

In 2006 Enya released 'Sounds of the Season: The Enya Holiday Collection', an EP with 6 Christmas songs. As well as Enya's renditions of 'Adeste Fideles' and 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas' there were two brand new songs called 'The Magic of The Night' and 'Christmas Secrets' (both little seasonal delights). The final track 'Amid The Falling Snow' was also an original but had been released previously on her 2005 album 'Amarantine'. There were variations of these songs released in different territories, the most well-known of which was the 'Christmas Secrets' EP which came out in Canada only but can also be purchased from Enya's website. 2006 also saw the re-release of Enya's 'Amarantine' LP, called 'The Christmas Edition' which contained the original LP plus 4 of the songs that appeared on ‘Sounds of the Season’.

Enya's 2008 release 'And Winter Came...' was her first full length Christmas album although several songs were more winter in orientation rather than dedicated to Christmas. 10 of the tracks were written especially for the album with the remaining made up of a choral version of 'Oíche Chiún' and her eerie version of the carol 'O Come O Come Emmanuel'. Highlights include the marching band like ‘White Is The Winter Night’, the genuinely heart-breaking ‘Last Time By Moonlight’ and the dramatic ‘Trains And Winter Rains’. All told it is a magical record for the season.

Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé,
Cách 'na suan dís araon,
Dís is dílse 'faire le spéis
Naoín beag gnaoigheal
ceananntais caomh...
Enya, Oíche Chiúin
