Enya: It was very difficult for me not to be involved with music, because both my parents were very musical. My dad, when he was 14, joined with his mum and dad, and he toured around Ireland. My mum was a music teacher. My dad's music would be a very sort of variation of ballads(民歌,歌谣), Irish ballads, to Glenn Miller-type of hits that were happening at the time. And then the area I come from known as the Gaeltacht(爱尔兰语地区) area, the northwest of Donegal(爱尔兰西北部的一个县), means that you're brought up speaking Gaelic as your first language within that area. And there is a lot of Irish traditional music within that area as well. So I felt really lucky that I heard all sorts of diverse music at a very young age. I wasn't aware of it, but I definitely was very determined to be involved with music. There are three people that, you know, are involved to: myself, Nicky and Roma.
Roma: We started working together, I suppose, about 1982. And when we made the decision, "OK, we want to do this," we put together a studio.
Nicky: The free time I had Enya had that time. Enya was living in our house and she started, all these melodies started to come out, so we got together whenever we could, and then Roma started to write lyrics.
Roma: At the time, I said to Enya and Nicolas, "The music is very visual(形象的,视觉化的). Why don't we think about soundtrack(声道,音带) initially(最初,开头)?"
Enya: I started to compose piano melodies, instrumentals, and Roma found them very visual and thought they'd be suited for film work, and got in touch with film directors and film producers. And then got a script(剧本) sent from David Puttnam for The Frog Prince.
David Puttnam: Something about the story reminded me of Enya and Enya's music, and I sent it to them, Roma and Enya, and they liked it a lot. And we worked, I think, 6 months, they worked 6 months on the score of the film and delivered what I think is an absolutely gorgeous score, beautiful score.
Enya: And that was the beginning of working with soundtrack. We heard they were making a BBC documentary(文献片,纪录片) on the Celts, so we thought this was perfect.
Nicky: We were working on a particular piece of music at the time. And we'd actually titled it The March of the Celts.
Roma: To me, an inspiration was historical, was Irish. You were relating to the story of the Celts.
Nicky: And I got a phone call from Tony Macauley, who is a producer from the BBC in northern Ireland asking us, would we work on this new series called The Celts. I couldn't believe it. It really was an amazing coincidence(巧合). So he said, "Do you have any music that you can send us down?" So I sent him down just a piece. And the director got back to us and said, "We could have the whole series… 72 minutes of music to do." And that's how the first album happened.
