Enya - 1987 Enya contains a selection of music composed and
performed by Enya for the BBC-TV documentary
series The Celts. Recorded in 1986, it was not
released until 1987 when the series was first
broadcast. The album was remastered and reissued
in 1992 as The Celts.
Watermark - 1988
Originally released with eleven tracks, the 1989 issues added Storms In Africa (Part II). Although the extra track has been retained on the US issue and a few others, most have now returned to the original format.
Shepherd Moons - 1991
Most pressings from mid-1992 onwards replaced the original Book Of Days with a re-recording of the English lyric version used in the film Far And Away which had previously been released as a single.
The Celts - 1992
This album is a re-release of Enya, containing a selection of material composed and performed by Enya for the BBC-TV documentary series The Celts. It has been remastered and Portrait replaced by an expanded version of itself under the title Portrait(Out Of The Blue), previously released on various singles as Out Of The Blue.
The Memory Of Trees - 1995
These are specifically those trees held sacred by the Druids of ancient Irish mythology; but there is just enough ambiguity in the title of Enya's latest album to please her enthusiasts, who tend to interpret her hard-to-classify music in deeply personal ways. Enya's distinctive style--an ethereal, hypnotic sound based on orchestral synthesizer and piano work, with multiple vocal layers which turn Enya's voice into an angelic choir
--stands out on THE MEMORY OF TREES.
Saved by strong, simple melodies from being lumped in with other New Age, Enya never loses track of the heart of each song. While most of the material here is tinged with melancholy and mysticism, "Anywhere Is" is a joyous, spiritual anthem to confusion and indecision. And Enya's lyrics, written in English, Spanish, Latin and Gaelic by longtime collaborator Roma Ryan, are often equally enigmatic. It doesn't matter--this is a musical landscape, and the listener is taken there by Enya's unmistakable voice, then left there to enjoy the scenery.

Paint The Sky With Stars - 1997 Paint The Sky With Stars is a compilation album featuring a selection of Enya's best known material plus two new tracks: Paint The Sky With Stars and Only If... Some tracks appear to have been remastered, exhibiting better low level detail, and there is also some evidence of remixing, notably on Ebudæ.
A Day Without Rain - 2000 A Day Without Rain is Enya's first studio album in five years. Of this album she says, "The title refers to the
mood on a particularly peaceful day on which there was no rain.
We do get a lot of rain in Ireland in all seasons. We had a run of
days where it had done nothing but rain. Then one day the sun
came out. It was then that I wrote the title track, so what else could
I call it?".
Only Time(Remix) - 2001
This single features a remixed version of Only Time. The track was remixed by S.A.F. (Christian B. and Mark Dold) with a final remix by Enya's producer Nicky Ryan. It received a lot of airtime on US radio following the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks. "Oíche Chiún" is properly spelled as "Oíche Chiúin" on some editions.
May It Be Single - 2002
Enya wrote and performed May It Be for the soundtrack of the film The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring. A few words in the otherwise English song are sung in Quenya, a fictional language invented by J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord Of The Rings.
