Hey, everyone. I just found a website where we can now listen to 30-second clips of ALL the tracks (and they are all AWESOME - let me have the privilege of being the first to say)! Well, enjoy, and tell us all what you think. I believe that after you hear these clips, your disapproval of the cover won't matter to you anymore.

I'll second that!!(not that I dissaproved in the first place... :P )- LOVE the clips- in particular, I was really longing to hear In Dulci Jubilo because it's one of my fav christmas carols- and I was far from dissapointed. I love them moya, and I cant wait to hear the whole thing!!

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started

Nessie, I have to agree with you. They sound marvelous. In dulci jubilo with English word is funny, I only know it with German (and Latin, but that is the same in the English version). For the song I look most forward to (Joy to the world) the website didn't choose such a good section, you cannot really hear how Moya interpretate this song.
But all in all: great! I count the days, until I will have the cd in my hands.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Hi Greg,

Thank you so much for posting this link! And you are right: listening to those wonderful clips made me forget about the cover. They all sound amazing, don't they? Really really beautiful!

Unfortunately the releasedate here in the Netherlands seems to be November 25 th. That's still a long way to go :( Having heard a little bit of what will be on the album, it's going to be a long wait!

Still, it will be worth it... :)

Wow, this sounds so beautiful!
Now that I listened to more soundclips, I recognized the Christmas feeling, it's wonderful!
I won't listen to this album only at Christmas, but surely the whole year :D

I started to listen to one or two of these clips this morning but then I decided I didn't want to...And the reason is a very luxurious one :mrgreen: It's because I am going to a Moya concert in December and I want the new songs and arrangements to be a surprise to me until then....can't wait to hear Moya performing these songs in a live setting!!!!

(I am extremely sorry for the people that can't go to see and hear Moya performing live...I do realize I am very privileged to live close to Germany)

Why Moya go always to Netherlands,swedens,Belgiums,etc etc the most of the countries of northern Europe?
She was in spain only once,many artists came to portugal also she and enya are the only artists who never came here :(

The song Joy To The World will be the jewel of this album,I'm sure

Take courage Endymion I just heard this evening that Moya's album will be available in France for the first time ever. So it looks like they are heading in your direction with the distribution and maybe with some live dates to follow???

Watch out guys for updates on the distribution. I think the details have been finally arranged for most of Europe so details will come out soon.

Also check out my announcement regarding the album title as it is a little different than what was announced.

I hope so,but to be realistic I dont think the portuguese will be so interested in a Christmas album no matter who does.Unfortunately most of people go after rock pop hip hop :?
We will see then,I hope that this album about Christmas will be more than a album with Christmas songs,like happened with TH.
