Orinoco Flow: The Music of Enya is a good idea done well. The Taliesin Orchestra, under the direction of Charles Sayre, performs the "non-vocal" music from 11 of Enya'a songs from four of her albums. The arrangements are purely symphonic with no pretense of trying to capture the magic of the original recordings. Instead, Sayre's sound design and the orchestra's performance have their own magic. Albums like this are generally ill-conceived and over-produced. This is a nice adult contemporary selection.
