'As Baile' appeared
on Enya's 1994 'Christmas' EP, which was a misleading title given
that the only truly Christmas track on it was her Irish language
version of 'Silent Night' ('Oiche Ciuin'). That said 'As Baile'
does sound like a track for winter, in many ways it is not unlike
Clannad's (the band with Enya and her family) 'Theme From Harry's
'As Baile' is a
reworking of 'Exile' from her breakthrough album 'Watermark' and
features no lyrics, yet Enya offers a masterclass in moody
intonation. 'As Baile' is Irish for 'Away From Home' and Enya
succeeds in creating that longing feeling.
