Question Legend Credits Music

Hi all,

One of my favourite music tracks from TRL has always been the credits music. But the first part is so short, I was always disappointed there wasn't a longer version.
I know that the Main Theme from Legend is mostly sampled from the Gaelic song 'Ailien Duin', although I'm unsure of the original singer. Listening to both, the vocals in the credits music SOUND like the same singer



I have no idea what the translation or the original sampled song is, but I've heard similar sounding vocals in another game. Years ago, while playing SimCity 4, I heard the track 'Epicenter'. At 0:50 of this track there are vocals that sound very close to the TRL Credits song.

Vocals start at 0:50


For the sake of curiosity, I was wondering is anyone on here has any clue as to the origin of the sampled vocals in the TRL credits. I appreciate any insight you guys might have.

Back in the day I just stumbled upon the original, ever since I realized how many outlets are using this song in whatever form:



I don't know if the translation is correct, but everything is in the video...

Unfortunately I can’t help with direct credits to the original (although Zscott’s link was spot on for the main theme). But if you love Legend’s musical style, you’d love the likes of Clannad if you’ve not heard them already.

The group are often linked most with Enya Brennan, I don’t think that does them justice though.

Ohh! I really like this!
I'm listening to a playlist now and this is totally my style of music.
Thank you for sharing Gaelen, I think I'm a fan of Clannad now!
