Behind the song: ''May It Be'' by Enya
''Such was the secrecy around Peter Jackson’s work on 'The Lord of the Rings' that Nicky, Roma and I had to travel across the world to New Zealand on a 23 hour flight for special viewing of the glorious, unfinished, uncut version of this epic film. We watched the film behind locked doors, only the three of us in the full sized Cinema. What a wonderful experience for the three of us! ''May it be'' brought us our first visit to the Oscars, and hopefully not our last.'' - Enya
"May it be" is written in both English and the Elvish language, Quenya. Quenya means "speech" and was known as the "Forbidden language" or "the language of the kinslayers". It was a language used primarily in ancient song and ceremony and in the language of lore. "May it be" or "Nai" in Quenya, is usually used by the Elves to express a wish.'' - Roma Ryan (songwriter)
