From the album "Enya" is the soundtrack album of the 1986 BBC documentary series The Celts. It is also the debut solo album of Enya, an Irish singer, pianist, and composer. The album was later remastered and reissued as The Celts (1992).

The album was first released in the UK by the BBC on their own label, and later issued in North America by Atlantic Records. In 1992, Warner Music reissued a remastered version of the album as The Celts.

The album includes only a portion of the music Enya composed for the documentary series. In 1992, coinciding with the reissue of the album, a previously unreleased track from these sessions, "Eclipse", was released as a B-side on the CD single for "the Celts". In 2005, another previously unreleased track from the same sessions, a "Spaghetti Western Theme" done in the style of Hugo Montenegro, was released on the CD single for "Amarantine", in memory of one of the producers of the TV series.

Filmmaker David Bickley reused music from the soundtrack was later in The Memory of Earth, an installment in his documentary trilogy Mythological Lands. The song "Boadicea" was also used in the soundtrack of the 1992 American film Sleepwalkers.
