One comment on a comment above in which someone refers to Enya as the vocalist on the Clannad theme. Enya (Eithne Ní Bhraonáin) had left Clannad before they recorded this theme. If I recall correctly she only appeared on one album "Crann Úll" (Apple Tree) as a backing vocalist. The lead vocalist on the theme was her sister Máire Ní Bhraonáin who records solo under the Anglicised version of her name Moya Brennan. The voice sounds a lot more like Moya also. I heard her perform this in a small venue (about 60-70 people) in Gleann Cholm Cille in Donegal a couple of months ago. Moya did a lovely job singing this as well as some of her newer stuff and a number of traditional tunes in Irish.
