12 Songs of Christmas - Song #4

Enya is kind of a guilty pleasure of mine -- I know how repetitive and studio-bound her music is, but I love it anyway. Winter and Christmastime suit her style particularly well (when they're not making more Lord of the Rings movies, anyway), and thus her latest album focuses particularly on the feelings and purity of winter.

Enya has done a number of Christmas songs before, but nothing I thought redefined any of the songs (though she does a nice turn on “Adeste Fidelis”), so instead I’ve chosen a “fan video” of a song from her latest album called The Spirit of Christmas Past, which works very well for her.
