The one I like the most, or better my favourite is the one from Moya... She sings it very warm, and for my feeling it´s like the fireplce in a house during X.mas.

This is exactly what I'm feeling. I couldn't say it better. Enya's version is nice but Moya's "Oiche Chuin" grabs me.

I really cannot decide :oops:
The first version I heard and know is Enya's Oíche Chiúin (yes, I don't even know the English one :oops:) and her's is lovely, but Moya's has different lyrics, and her voice really suits those lyrics. Gah. I give up. They're both fantastic :D

Enya's Oíche Chiúin Chorale on the new album is wonderful, the winner hands down.

Enya's Oiche Chiuin Chorale is, sorry to say, far superior to any other version of Silent Night, Stille Nacht, etc....

Each to their own. However, I personally think that both Moya's and Enya's Oíche Chiúin are better than any others. Although I personally prefer the origingal and mispelt Oíche Chiúin out of Enya's two, and I can't decide between Moya and Enya

Enya's original 'Oíche Chiúin' is gorgeous, as is her new version, but Moya's sticks more with tradition, and yet, at the same time diversifies the song, so I've voted Moya's. And it's Aisling and Paul's vocals too that make the difference, they really add to the family-meaning behind Oíche Chiúin/Silent Night.

I finally voted, and I chose Enya's (old version). Even though I like Moya's version a lot, for some reason I like Enya's more. It's hard to describe why, but I just like how she gives the song a more ethereal sound.
But I agree with those who said that Moya's sticks closer to the tradition, it has always been a song that can create a very familiar atmosphere.

i just prefer moya's live-version from the concert in baden last december :P :mrgreen:
i mean this discussion is a simply matter of tase, isn't it? enya's version has an incomparably ethereal touch while moya's interpretation of the song is more natural and - has been said already - familiar.

i really like enya's voice but with moya's voice there is no comparison and the meaning of christmas and the carols have to moya it tells its own tale.
so i completly agree with Roibeard Óg :)
