of course, i first heard this at the cinema!
hence, the atmospheric quality of the song was enhanced by the visual imagery on the screen.
however, having listened to the track since, as often as possible, in it's own right, it is incredibly positive, romantic, beautiful, magical, enchanting, perhaps one of the best pieces she has ever written?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good CD to own April 10 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I find the sound quality of May It Be better than the one from the Sound Track album, however, it is a little disappointing that this one does not have the short music score at the end, making it 43 seconds shorter than the one in the sound track album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Song From a 2001 Film!!! April 19 2002
By Neal C. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay, the Acadamy Award & Golden Globe Award voters didn't agree with me, but who are you going to believe: those guys, or me? LOL
Yes, I do believe that "May It Be" will be listened to long after the other nominees are forgotten, but do bear in mind that I am highly biased for all of Enya's work. For many, it may take several listens to completely appreciate. It has a certain mysticism to it, much as you would expect from a song composed for the LORD OF THE RINGS film.
However, I don't think "May It Be", brilliant as it is, matches "Isobella" in beauty, healing quality, and enchantment. Both "Isobella" and "The First of Autumn" have been unavailable in the U.S. although both were on the Japanese pressing of "A Day Without Rain".
"The First of Autumn" is the most energetic song of the three, and close to equalling the first two. While I do appreciate the thoughts of another reviewer who felt quite swept up in the sequence of the three, I personally feel the disc would've been better balanced with "The First of Autumn" between the more mystical and reflective songs, but that is hardly a criticism.
This is definitely a must have disc for all who love Enya's music. It's Enya at her very best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very, very good, all I actually dislike is the price May 1 2002
By A. Burchfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this single because it had some Enya tunes not otherwise available (May it be is on The Lord of The Rings soundtrack)and was pleased with each song. Enya can do very well and this CD shows it, if you like her work you'll probably want it. I'm not sure which one I like best (May it Be?), but my one complaint is the cost,[price] for three songs is so very near the cost of an album with four times as many songs on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a beautiful piece of music! Sept. 7 2005
By Bruce E. Munck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While looking at all the extras on my 2-disc version of "Fellowship Of The Ring" I came across the video of Enya singing "May It Be". I was hooked by about the ten-second mark. The song instantly became a favorite of mine and I began looking for it on cd. I finally found the movie soundtrack and had the song in a format I could play in my truck. If you haven't yet seen it, the video is nothing short of fantastic! I would place this song alongside of other great movie music such as: "Moon River" and "My Heart Will Go On".

5.0 out of 5 stars May It Be is a breathtaking single. March 10 2002
By Distant Voyageur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was a bit dissapointed with Enyas A Day Without Rain release back when it came out. That album has since grown on me and today I find it to be a great CD even though the CD length was and still is a joke to me. May It Be is kind of like the darker sound that A Day Without Rain album lacked. I in no way am putting down the Rain album and I actually love that album today but May It Be, Isobella, and the First Of Autumn beat out just about every song on that album.
May It Be is a gorgeous, sad song that brings back memories if smaointe from a decade ago. It would have beat out almost every other track on her latest release. The real treat on this single is Isobella. I reviewed both the U.S. and the Japanese versions of Enyas latest album A Day Without Rain. I gave the U.S. version a four and the Japanese a five. Isobella is a haunting, gorgeous hymn sung in Gaelic, the language I love hearing Enya sing in. Isobella doesn't sound quite like Smaointe, or Na Leatha Geal M'Oige as Kabir Ahamed proclaims. It is more similar to Hope Has A Place or La Sonadora. Isobella does not top Smaointe or Na Leatha but Isobella is a song that stands out on it's own and had it been included on A Day Without Rain, it would have propelled it to a five star. The First Of Autumn is a beautiful instrumental that brings up images of a cloudy evening with the red, and orange leaves falling to the ground. Isobella and The First Of Autumn should have been included. They could have made the album much longer and possibly over 40 minutes long. But at least this set of three songs is a good purchase. I say go and get this CD. The three songs on here are great and are like the punch that most of Enyas latest album lacks.
This single is worth having just for Isobella.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, Bad Price Sept. 19 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Be advised: you only get 15 minutes of music. But you pay nearly full price for a full-size CD.
As always, Enya's music is most excellent. But somebody didn't do the math to determine that customers will be dissatisfied to discover that they get only three songs on this CD. It's hardly worth loading the CD into your player. You'll be swapping disks just after you sit down to enjoy it.
