As Snow Falls (Music Thoughts: Christmas Secrets, Enya)

190295307820When I saw this Christmas release from Enya, I thought, well, finally, if there was an artists whose voice lends to Holiday music, it would be hers.  Well, this compilation, titled ‘Christmas Secrets’ is a collection of previously-released tracks from previous albums. While I really frown on compilations, this one serves a good purpose, and is a good substitute in lieu of a new album. And this is one of those albums wherein you know exactly how it will sound. Someone described this as a great aural companion to if you were stuck somewhere while it is snowing outside. Imagine looking at the window, as snow gracefully falls, as you listen to her calm versions of ‘O Come O Come Emmanuel,’ or ‘Adeste Fideles,’ and well, you get the picture. In Southern California where I am, there isn’t quite snow, but while listening to this, for a brief second, it felt it.
