Trivia

Besides performing some of the soundtrack music and the theme song, Enya also performs two musical numbers during the course of the series: "I Want Tomorrow" and "Aldebaran". The former shows the singer in a very out-of-character context: she plays an evil person with magic powers who goes around blowing up cars by pointing her finger. See more »

Enya fans are in for a treat
2 November 2001 | by (Calgary, Canada) – See all my reviews

"The Celts" is remembered as an excellent documentary on an ancient culture (not to be confused with a more recent series of well done documentaries by the same title). But it is best remembered as the show that introduced the world to the Irish singer Enya, who was hired to write the score for the series.

Enya, still several years away from her first worldwide hit "Orinoco Flow", really shines with her haunting ethereal melodies. Fans will want to check out this program (finally available on video) since Enya is shown singing during the opening credits, and one episode features a music video of her performing one of her wordless masterpieces ("Aldebaran"). The segment is actually rather out of place with much of the show in a sense (what does it have to do with ancient cultures?), but it does give the show a unique feel that stays with the viewer long after the closing credits roll.
