And Winter Came by Enya
Released: Nov 2008
Label: 143/Reprise
In the wintry world of Enya's first-ever Christmas release, the Irish artist carries us across snowy fields that stretch for miles, wind-swept by unearthly "oohs" and "ahhs" and accompanied by the shimmering bridle bells of the ivory gelding's canter. The collection of originals is mixed with some traditionals -- like the startled rendition "O Come O Come Emmanuel" -- but leans toward agnostic winter leitmotifs. The most interesting song is the penultimate "My! My! Time Flies!," a gentle snowball fight between John Tesh and Brian May that includes, of all rare gifts, a genuine guitar solo.
