Bard Dance

the 13th song of the album The Celts (1992), composed and performed by Enya,
The Bard, in ancient Celtic times was a man of great importance. His foremost function was in the praise of his king. He also entertained the assembly, sometimes in eulogy, sometimes in satire. Together with the Druid, Warrior and Silversmith, he represents the image of the ancient Celt. In medieval Gaelic and British culture (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Brittany and Cornwall) a bard was a professional poet, employed by a patron, such as a monarch or nobleman, to commemorate the patron's ancestors and to praise the patron's own activities.

Having that emotional impact is Enya's primary goal. "Music has always been very important to people, if it's the moment you need to let your hair down and have a great dance, or a joyous occasion or a sad time," she said. "There's a lot of interpretation to the music, and it's up to individual listeners. That's something I can't make happen. Music takes me on a journey and I give myself time to follow it."
