The String Quartet Tribute to Enya: Dreams

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Enya's ethereal, misty-eyed new age craft has inspired numerous tributes over the years, from a stirring 1996 recording of symphonic renditions of her music by the Taliesin Orchestra, to Big Eye Records' 2004 Tribute to Enya, which was pleasant enough even if its relevancy was questionable.

Though it doesn't include well-known pieces like "Watermark" or "Orinoco Flow," this tribute does turn in impressive versions of the more recent songs "A Day Without Rain" and "Only Time."
