Dec. 10-25, 2011

Welcome to the Songs of the Season music hop! You're invited to join us every day from December 10-25, to enjoy a virtual round of caroling.

You can visit another blog each day to find another wonderful music selection, handpicked by a great host. Schedule

Here's my selection for your enjoyment!

Title: Amid the Falling Snow
Artist: Enya
Available at: Amazon on Enya: Sounds of the Season and Amarantine: Special Christmas edition

***Please pause the music player in the upper right sidebar 
before enjoying this selection***


Enya's music always evokes an old world feeling for me.  Her music is
so peaceful.  I just love listening to it with the lights turned low, candles
burning, and the Christmas tree alight.  This song is especially lovely.

Lyrics:
How I remember sleepless nights
When we would read by candlelight,
And on the windowpane outside
A new world made of snow;

A million feathers falling down,
A million stars that touch the ground,
So many secrets to be found
Amid the falling snow.

Maybe I am falling down.
Tell me should I touch the ground?
Maybe I won't make a sound
In the darkness all around.

The silence of a winter's night
Brings memories I hold inside;
Remembering a blue moonlight
Upon the fallen snow.

Maybe I am falling down.
Tell me should I touch the ground?
Maybe I won't make sound
In the darkness all around.

I close my window to the night.
I leave the sky her tears of white.
And all is lit by candlelight
Amid the falling snow.

  6. It's a long time since I've heard Enya, but it's true she has an enigmatic way of singing

Your comments mean a lot. I will mostly likely respond to them here in the comments. If you ask a specific question, I will try to respond in an email (if I can access your email through your blogger profile).

Please do not be offended, but this is an award free blog. While I appreciate the gesture, believe me when I say that your friendship is award enough. Thank you.
